Applications of API Line Pipe
With escalating world energy demand, the oil and gas industries have become a rapidly growing market for Future Pipe Industries (FPI). The vast increase in exploration and production, both onshore and offshore, has ensured a substantial need for pipe systems which can efficiently transport resources directly to consumers.
As corrosion poses major challenges for conventional pipe material in high-pressure upstream applications, the excellent non-corrosive characteristic of fiberglass has made it the clear material of choice. In particular, fiberglass piping systems have repeatedly demonstrated their superiority for usage on ships and vessels, offshore platforms, and in the dredging industry.
Pipelines are energy lifelines, making almost every daily activity possible. Pipelines play a huge role in everyday lives and are essential to the nation’s industries.
Applications of API line Pipes :
1. API Line Pipes for Oil & Gas Production
Flow lines, gathering lines and water injection lines for upstream O&G exploration and production processes.
2. Downhole Tubing and Well Casings
All downhole API pipes used for water injection, CO2 injection, waste injection and production lines as well as well casings for O&G, water and chemical wells.
3. Oil & Gas Transmission Lines
API Line Pipe is best solution forMedium & low pressure transmission lines.
4. Refinery Piping
API Pipe is best for downstream applications in processing units, refineries and gas plants such as circulation water, process piping, oily water, cooling systems and fire fighting networks.
5. Fuel Handling and Storage Tanks
API Pipe also used for fuel handling and storage including fire fighting networks and oily water drainage, as well as underground fuel storage tanks for fuel distribution.
6. Marine Piping on Vessels
API Pipe is commonly used for the ship building industry, mainly used for marine piping on vessels and submarines.
7. Offshore Platform Piping
API Line Pipe is first choice for offshore applications including platform piping.
8. Floats and Dredging
API Pipe is best solution for dredging, floating production storage and off-loading (FPSO).
API 5L X42 X52 X56 X60 X65 X70 AND X80 PIPE are used in Pipelines, these pipelines are the unsung heroes of many utilities – water, sewer, telephone lines, liquid petroleum pipelines and natural gas pipelines – tucked under our streets. They safely go through neighborhoods and communities, stretch across farms, forests, deserts, and everywhere in between. These same pipelines provide fuel to generate electricity and the building blocks for fertilizers to increase crop production. Pipelines also collect crude oil from many rural areas to deliver to refineries and chemical plants to create all the products that come from petroleum and petrochemicals manufacturing.Send Inquiry
