Transcripts - Polyflow Thermoflex Overview June 2012

  • 1. Thermoflex® Tubing Reinforced Thermoplastic Gathering, Disposal and Injection LinesOverviewJune 11, 2012
  • 2. Polyflow LLC• Design Manufacture and Market Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe and Tube for the Oil and Gas Industry• Significantly Reduce the Capital Costs Required for Downhole Tubulars and Surface Piping• Minimize Corrosion and Resultant Environmental Concerns with Piping Systems
  • 3. Unique Competencies• Multi-layer Extrusion Capability – Bond Polymers That don’t “like” each other – Achieve Properties At a Minimal Cost• Braiding/ Reinforcement Technology – “Net Neutral Braid” Technology – Strength with 10% of the braid – Aramid Fibers
  • 4. What makes Polyflow Unique ?• Nylon and Polyphenylene Liners• Extremely Lightweight and Flexible Eliminating Conventional Equipment• Superior Cyclical Loading Performance• Pull Through Existing Pipelines with Tight Clearances and Bends
  • 5. Key Considerations for Thermoflex® Surface Lines• Liner Compatibility with Fluids • Water only – HDPE • Water with Hydrocarbons, CO2 - Nylon • Water with Hydrocarbons, CO2, H2S - PPS• Bonded Liners to Minimize Collapse Resistance• Aramid Fibers to Withstand Cyclic Loading• Flow Rate Requirements Can reduce Pipe Diameter and Costs• Low Cost Rapid Installation and Repair to Reduce Capital Costs.
  • 6. Liner Construction & Design• Multi-layer Design – Inner Liner • Corrosion Resistance Inner Barrier • Low Permeation • No Softening /Swelling – Polymer Selection • Nylon . . Hydrocarbons, CO2, Brine Outer Strength and • PPS . . . Hydrocarbons, Abrasion Layer CO2, Brine, H2S• Keeps Costs Attractive
  • 7. Reinforcement Layer Considerations• Multi-layer Design – Cross Braids Provide Axial Strength – Longitudinal Braids Provide Tensile Strength to Minimize Stretch – Aramid Fibers for Fatigue and Strength• Tubing Strength P=(2*F*n)/D*L
  • 8. Reinforcement Options Aramid Steel GlassStrength High Medium HighCyclic Loading Excellent Excellent PoorH20 Environment Excellent Good PoorCO2/H2S Good Poor GoodRapid Impact Good Good Poor
  • 9. UV Protection• Not Resistant Forever• Prefer TiO2 package – White keeps pipe cooler than black – Long term Data on the additives to the plastic• Does not help in Fire
  • 10. Couplings and Terminations • Required for Each End of the Tubing • Threaded, Weld, & Flange Styles Available • Zinc Chromate Plated Carbon or Duplex Stainless Steel • Joint less Unions
  • 11. Eliminating Welding • Pre-fab Risers – Shop Fabricated – Pre Tested – Any Configuration • Couples Right to Thermoflex Tubing
  • 12. Tools For Coupling• Portable Coupling Machines (250lbs)• Up to 4.5”• For Termination and Union Couplings• 10,000PSI Hydraulic Pump
  • 13. Delivery of Tubing• Comes on Spools• Length Dependent Upon OD and Pressure Rating• Spools are disposable – No Deposit, No Return – Easy to Break Down
  • 14. Installation Methods• Direct Bury • Continuous Plowing • Trenching• Pulled Through Existing Steel Pipe – Sizing Dependent Upon Restrictions in Steel – Pig with wire line and pull pipe
  • 15. Modeling Gathering Lines Thermoflex ID ID  1.880in Operating Pressure Length (Gage) Operating Temp• Liquid or Gas Modeling L  9500ft P  400psi T  460°F  120°F 600• Comparison to Steel 500 – Smaller Diameter for Equal Pressure Drop 400 Press ure D rop (ps i) 2 3/8” Steel – Continuous Runs reduces 300 Pressure Drops 200• Less Erosion Issues vs. 100 Thermoflex Steel 0 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 Flow Rate (bbl/day) Thermoflex T ubing Steel Tubing
  • 16. Why Thermoflex ®• Polymers Designed for Hydrocarbons – No Softening and Swelling – Low Permeation• Aramid Fibers – Cyclic Loading Resistance (Hydraulic Hammer) – Resistance to Water• Rapid Low Cost Installation• Lightweight to Minimize Equipment Requirements• No Issues with Paraffin – Hot Oiling – Blow Through Paraffin
