Need a quick quote or have a pipe support question?
The harsh marine atmosphere experienced by FPSO’s and production platforms is a fertile environment for composite materials to protect against the elements of high humidity and temperature. Salt water corrosion is especially aggressive at metal-to-metal contact points.
It can be prevented by using non-conductive ProTek Wear Pads and Pipe Shoes to protect both pipe and structure, eliminating the need for welding during installation.
See how our products have solved corrosion issues for many major oil and gas companies below.
|Chevron, Big Foot||Gulf of Mexico||APP provided ProTek Wear Pads for all uninsulated pipes at points of metal-to-metal contact on platform topsides.
The Big Foot oil field is estimated to contain 100 million oil-equivalent barrels.
|Chevron Jack and St. Malo||Gulf of Mexico||APP provided 13,000 ProTek Packages consisting of wear pads and metallic pipe supports, along with 15 installation training sessions.
This was a custom solution, developed in collaboration with Chevron in order to address corrosion concerns—evaluation estimated that this solution added 30 years to the pipe supports’ offshore lifespan.
