Asset owners know the impact corrosion can have on the lifespan of a gas/oil pipeline that is exposed to the elements. At ClockSpring|NRI, we understand that a shutdown costs money. Our solutions help you avoid the costs that result from repairing or re-pulling pipes using traditional solutions. With asset integrity in mind our state-of-the-art pipeline corrosion protection solutions are designed and tested to protect assets in a range of environments. And they can be applied without a lengthy shutdown period to not only restore asset integrity, but protect lines from further damage.
Offshore Pipeline Corrosion
Offshore pipelines take a harder hit than other assets because of the harsh environments where they are deployed. Constant exposure to waves and sea spray can compromise pipeline integrity. As internal or external corrosion eats away at the pipe, it can create leaks that could lead to the failure of the entire system.
To reduce the need for expensive repairs, we offer pipeline corrosion protection with nearly every one of our products. Our affordably priced pre-impregnated composite wraps, like Viper Skin, for example, are designed to reinforce and protect offshore pipelines as well as structures.
Other Types of Corrosion on Pipelines & Structures
While seawater is the most common cause of corrosion, damage can come from multiple sources whether a pipeline is placed above or below the water line. The area between the water and the deck, known as “soil-to-air interfaces,” is exposed to conditions that impact integrity including:
- Oxygen levels
- pH levels
- Chemicals & Fertilizers
Our engineers evaluate every individual situation to determine which of our Engineered Composite Repair (ECR) systems is right for each site. Important conditions to share when requesting a free consultation are the location of the pipeline/structure, the factors that are causing the corrosion, and the type of corrosion observed.
ClockSpring|NRI Corrosion Protection Solutions
Regardless of the cause of line damage, the safest course of action is to repair the pipeline to restore integrity as soon as possible. At ClockSpring|NRI we have a range of solutions for corrosion protection that can be applied with minimal downtime:
- Syntho-Glass XT delivers both internal and external corrosion repair and reinforcement. It is pre-impregnated to reduce preparation time and can be installed in wet environments, making it suitable for most operating conditions.
- CompoSol also protects against internal and external corrosion as well as successfully restored integrity and improved operations on offshore assets. Our CompoSol system can reinforce decks, pipelines, bulkheads, storage modules and other gas/oil assets.
- Trident-Wrap and other Trident product lines have shown that they can successfully reinforced natural gas risers exhibiting up to 80% wall loss. On these non-leaking pipelines, our solution arrests the progression of corrosion while protecting the line from further degradation.
