RTP-Rehab™

How It Works

Specialty RTP employs a step by step process to assure successful rehabilitation of wells and pipelines that includes:

  • Analyze existing pipeline or well to assess the issue, determine the optimal pipe or tubing size to minimize ongoing maintenance expense and develop an installation procedure for the particular application
  • Manufacture the RTP with the polymers and pressure rating for the application. This would include corrosive environment resistance, temperature resistance, pressure resistance and pull force requirements
  • Install the system in accordance with all safety requirements of the Operator
  • Return on Investment Analysis
Benefits for Pipelines

Benefits for Pipelines

  • Returns a leaking or corroded pipeline back to production for 50-80% less capital cost than conventional technologies
  • No Removal of the Existing Pipeline because the new RTP is pulled through the original pipeline
  • Right sized for today’s production to move solids, minimize maintenance pigging
  • Pipe Manufactured from Polymers Inert to harsh oilfield environments which minimizes ongoing corrosion inhibitor costs
  • No sacrifice to safety and Pipeline Integrity
Benefits for Downhole Tubulars

Benefits for Downhole Tubulars

  • Rehabilitate downhole tubulars without removing existing tubing for a fraction of the cost of traditional recompletion
  • No need to pull packers or tubing where there is a risk of parting requiring fishing
  • Right sizing of tubing to maintain critical velocities for liquid lifting
  • Low cost installation equipment

RTP Pipe and Tubing

How It Works

There are three components to RTP: An inner liner, a reinforcement layer and an outer protective jacket.

Liner: The inner liner is designed to withstand the oilfield flowing environment without corrosion and maintain a low level of permeation. Specialty RTP utilizes various polymers depending upon the temperature, H2S, CO2 and Hydrocarbon concentrations. By utilizing polymers such as Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS), Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) and nylon, Specialty RTP creates pipes and tubing to withstand applications to 100°C (212°F) and any level of CO2, H2S, brine and hydrocarbons.

Reinforcement: Specialty RTP’s pipe and tubing strength comes from braiding aramid fibers onto the inner liner. It can create pipes with design pressures from 275PSI to 3,000PSI. Aramid fiber was chosen because of its overall strength, cyclic or fatigue resistance and chemical resistance.

Outer Jacket: The sole purpose of the outer jacket is to protect the reinforcement. Depending upon the application, specific polymers are employed that are resistant to the external environment.

Why Use RTP Pipe and Tubing?

Why Use RTP Pipe and Tubing?

  • Superior corrosion resistance to steel eliminating the need for ongoing corrosion inhibitor treatments
  • Rapid low cost installation reduces overall installed capital costs and 4 times more rapid tie in times versus steel leads to more rapid paybacks
  • Continuous lengths minimizes joints and the risk for field errors
  • Smooth Liner Wall reduces pressure drop and allows for smaller lower cost pipe diameters than required by steel.
Selecting the right RTP pipe or tube for the application:

Selecting the right RTP pipe or tube for the application:

Specialty RTP provides the customer with a questionnaire requesting information about the flow stream chemistry, temperatures, flow rates, pipeline topography or well completion. Based upon the information Specialty RTP will provide suggested size options with pressure drop comparisons, pipe construction and pressure rating options.
