CHANGES TO CSA Z662 “OIL AND GAS PIPELINE SYSTEMS” TO INCORPORATE HIGHER PERFORMANCE PLASTIC PIPE

Papers # 2010 Vancouver

CSA Z662 is the Standard for the use of plastic pipe in Canadian oil and gas pipeline systems. This paper will give an overview of the recently approved revisions to CSA Z662-11 “Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems”, which will be published next year. These revisions include the following : - RCP Requirements for PE pipe, - MRS Design Equation and PE 100, - HDB Design Factor of 0.45, - Plus Performance PE materials, - CRS Methodology, - Polyamide Materials and - Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe. The paper will discuss the reasons why these revisions to incorporate higher performance plastic pipes were made to the CSA Z662 Standard, and will serve as an introduction to several papers on the use of plastic piping for natural gas distribution in Canada that will be presented at PP XV.

This work presents the development of the Full Length Tensile Test (FLTT), a method that enables an objective judgement of welding quality of electrofusion welds by measuring the energy to break (J/mm2 ). In this way a brittle, ductile and transitional mode failure can be differentiated without subjective visual...

EXPANDING THE APPLICATION RANGE OF HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE FOR USE AS AN INNER-LINER MATERIAL IN REINFORCED THERMOPLASTIC PIPE AND STEEL PIPE

Author(s) : Johannes de Bruin, Dr. Bert Dalmolen, Albo van Hateren 2016 Berlin

Normal High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is commonly used as the fluid contacting element, or the “inner-liner”, in Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes (RTP) and steel pipes up to 65 ºC. Through a modification of the HDPE polymer matrix, by adding nanoparticles, the E-modulus can be increased. Research shows that...

FLEXIBLE PLASTIC SOLUTION FOR DISTRICT HEATING PIPES

Author(s) : Dr. Anton Vasilenko 2016 Berlin

In today’s world a lot of energy is wasted. More than 50 % of the energy is lost on its way to the customer. The fundamental idea of modern district heating is to recycle heat that otherwise would be lost and to use renewable sources to heat homes. In other words: a market place for green heat that reduces...
