Thermoflex composite pipe resists corrosion—and tariffs

Posted by Drew Phillips on Apr 30, 2018 8:47:22 PM

U.S. industries are bracing themselves for the ramifications of the new 25 percent tariff on imported steel. Just as the nation is poised to lead the world in oil and gas production, pipeline infrastructure is in desperate need of repair, along with new pipelines to accommodate the need for increased capacity.1 All of this, unfortunately, requires imported steel, which has forced many companies to look for alternative solutions to make these projects economically viable.

Hydrogen Sulfide: When Chemistry Attacks

Posted by Drew Phillips on Feb 19, 2018 4:31:12 PM

From pipelines to processing equipment, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) wreaks havoc on oil and gas infrastructure. This corrosive compound, also known as sour gas, is found in the highly acidic hydrocarbons ubiquitous to crude oil and refinery operations. In this destructive process, carbon steel becomes embrittled due to contact with the H2S, the resulting oxidation reaction, and the loss of electrons.
