Fiberspar Expands LinePipe Product Line



    Larger Diameter Spoolable Pipe Creates New Options to Reduce Costs

    CALGARY, March 13 /CNW/ - Fiberspar LinePipe Canada Ltd. today introduced
new, large-diameter versions of its popular spoolable composite pipe product.
Fiberspar's 750 Series LinePipe(TM) is now available in 5- and 6-inch nominal
diameters, while the 1,500 Series LinePipe is offered in 5-inch nominal, with
the option of a highly durable jacket for rough terrain.

    The larger diameters allow operators to use LinePipe for main trunk line
applications as well as for smaller flow lines, according to Peter Quigley,
president and chief executive officer of Fiberspar LinePipe LLC.

    "Our customers have long expressed a desire to use LinePipe in more
applications throughout their gathering and transmission systems. The new,
large-diameter sizes answer that need," Quigley said.

    "Fiberspar LinePipe is the world's most widely accepted spoolable
high-pressure pipeline technology, with more than 3-million meters installed,
which is more than any other product in its class," Quigley said. "One reason
why customers want to use it in more applications is that its smooth,
HDPE-lined interior dramatically increases flow with minimal pressure drop."

    Easy to handle with simple connections, LinePipe is consistently less
expensive to install than stick fiberglass, and coated or lined steel, Quigley
said. "Plus, it helps operators reduce repair costs throughout their asset's
lifecycle because of its resistance to corrosion," he added.

    LinePipe is also suitable for in-field pipe rehab. "Because of its
continuous length, flexible composite pipe can be pulled through existing flow
lines, making it an ideal permanent remediation solution in corrosive
applications," Quigley said.

    Fiberspar is the market and technology leader in the design, manufacture,
and application of high-strength, fiber-reinforced tubular products designed
for oil, water, gas or multi-phase service. For more information on Fiberspar,
