New Solutions for Aging Pipelines
Pipeline infrastructure in the United States is vital to industry, national security, and economic well-being. However, as this aging infrastructure ages even further, so increases the likelihood of devastating oil and gas spills due to the effects of corrosion on steel.
Rehabilitation is more viable approach with the introduction of flexible, composite pipe, which in fact offers numerous cost and performance advantages over steel.
This white paper on pipeline rehabilitation dives into the following topics:
- The nature and causes of corrosion
- Logistical challenges to replacement strategies
- New steel versus rehab: the argument for rehabilitation
- Effectiveness of flexible pipeline rehabilitation
