Fiberspar Corp. introduced its newest large-diameter LinePipe™ product and claimed that the technology offered twice the reel capacity of similar spoolable products.
The LinePipe LPI is available in a 6.5-in configuration that allows twice the continuous amount of pipe on a single spool, stated the company. The LinePipe LPI is ideal for large-diameter trunk lines or higher capacity gathering and injection applications.
Fiberspar claimed that the LPI design permits 1,200 ft (365 m) of pipe per spool while meeting safe load restrictions, allowing for longer runs between connections and thus lower installation costs.
LinePipe LPI is suitable for sour or sweet gas, oil, or multi-phase gathering applications and high-pressure water or carbon dioxide injection. It is available in operating pressures from 750 psi to 1,500 psi and operating temperatures up to 180°F (82°C).
“LinePipe offers 20% lower total installed costs than welded steel, ” said Peter Quigley, Fiberspar’s chief executive officer. “LPI will help push those costs even lower by further reducing the time and resources required for installation.”
