Assessing the Effectiveness of Steel-Composite Hybrid Pipeline for Corrosive, High Pressure Applications
This paper describes an on-going study to investigate the efficacy of a steel-composite hybrid pipe material for applications in highly corrosive and extreme pressure conditions. The study, covering aspects of costs, design and qualification testing, has been carried out using an actual 10-in condensate steel pipeline as the basis for comparison. On the whole it has been concluded that the hybrid pipe material has the potential to substitute metal pipelines where corrosion resistance and high pressure are major drivers, although assessment is continuing.
