Ticona to Exhibit Engineering Polymers and Composites for Oil & Gas at SPE ATCE 2012

Press release date: October 4, 2012

Ticona Engineering Polymers is showcasing its engineering polymers and composite prepregs for the most extreme and challenging oil and gas operating environments at the Society of Petroleum Engineers' Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE 2012) at Booth # 930 from Oct. 8 to 10 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio. The Ticona exhibit will highlight: Fortron PPS for Pipe Liners and Flexible Composite Pipe Subject to Sour Gas and Corrosive Conditions Fortron polyphenylene sulfide delivers performance in some of the most extreme and challenging environments. Harsh oilfield conditions can take their toll on the most resilient materials. Heat and corrosive elements like hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) pose a constant threat to oil and gas operations. In this hostile environment, Fortron PPS can minimize costly maintenance and repair. As a liner, it can greatly prolong the life of steel and offers many cost-effective advantages as an overall metal replacement. Successful high performance products based on Fortron PPS polymers are extensively used in a broad spectrum of applications in various industries, including oil and gas, automotive, industrial, electrical/electronic/semiconductor, and technical fibers and filters, which require key high performance material characteristics: High temperature resistance
Chemical resistance
Low permeation properties
Dimensional stability
High strength and modulus
Wear resistance
Corrosion resistance
Flame resistance
Hydrolytic stability Celstran CFR-TP Composites for Robust Piping Systems and Lightweighting Applications Celstran continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are available as unidirectional (UD) tapes, which can increase the in line burst and operating pressures of thermoplastic pipe when wound around and joined to piping systems for reinforcement, or as continuous rods, shapes and profiles that can replace steel tensile members in ropes and cabling applications both on- and off-shore. Celstran CFR-TP (continuous fiber composites) offer: Low weight with high stiffness and toughness
Excellent impregnation technology for high performance mechanical and thermal properties
Excellent dimensional stability
Superior chemical and corrosion resistance Celstran CFR-TP UD tape can be used in on-shore and off-shore piping systems, including, including service lines, risers and umbilicals. These composite pipes are lightweight, flexible, durable and spoolable, allowing for fast installation speeds up to 500 meters an hour.
