Oil and gas, alternatives to steel in tubular applications

The increasing demand for oil and gas has led to a continuous exploration in deep sea. With the pressure rising to several hundred psi, corrosive environment around and the challenges encountered in transporting heavy parts and components have meant that there is increasingly a need of superior alternatives to steel in tubular applications. This paper discusses the trend of composites as potential alternative to the conventional steel used in tubular applications like pipelines, risers and drill pipes in the offshore oil and gas industry.
