Chevron had used plastic half-rod supports in their recent Tahiti project. The weight of the pipe led to breakage of the plastic rods; natural expansion/ contraction of the pipe also caused the plastic halfrods to shift. Chevron reported changing out these supports every four to five years, and the costs of shipping replacement parts and employing repair personnel was becoming prohibitive.
To avoid this challenge on their Jack and St. Malo platform, the APP ProTek Wear Pad was being considered as a replacement. However, there was some concern that the APP solution could rub the coating from beams. In addition to wear pads, Chevron also needed demonstrably corrosion-resistant pipe supports. To address these concerns, APP worked closely with Chevron to develop an entirely new solution.
To address the client’s focus on protecting the beam’s coating, APP created a custom solution — the ProTek Package.
