Coiled Line Pipe

coiled line pipe

Coiled line pipe allows several miles of flowline to be installed with minimum pipe-to-pipe girth welds, eliminating costly welding, heat-treating, x-ray, and inspection steps.

Tangible benefits for the oil and gas industry

Tenaris offers coiled line pipe as an alternative to conventional 12-meter length line pipe because it reduces installation time and costs, enhances external coating integrity and improves flow characteristics for oil and gas operations. Coiled line pipe is available in outside diameters of up to 5” and a range of wall thicknesses with pressure ratings of up to 10,000 psi.

Tenaris produces coiled line pipe in the following grades:

  • X-52-C
  • X-65-C
  • X-70-C
  • X-80-C
  • X-52-C
  • X-65-C
  • X-70-C
  • X-80-C

Coiled line pipe allows several miles of flowline to be installed with minimum pipe-to-pipe girth welds, eliminating costly welding, heat-treating, x-ray, and inspection steps. Equipment needs and installation times are dramatically reduced allowing wells to come online faster and at lower costs. Tenaris coiled line pipe is at the forefront of sub-sea technology and provides customers with tremendous operational advantages.

Tenaris coating system

Coating systems applied to the coiled line pipe offer unsurpassed sub-sea and surface corrosion protection, including:

  • Up to several miles without tube welds
  • Elimination of costly weld, heat-treat, x-ray, and inspection steps
  • Dramatic reduction of installation time and equipment
  • Reduced right-of-way costs and environmental impact.

Quality

Our manufacturing and quality assurance processes are certified to produce coiled line pipe to multiple specifications, including DNV-OS-F101. We were the first and only mill certified to API 5CLP. Tenaris coiled line pipe has been installed at water depths of over 2,200 meters and in challenging Arctic regions such as the Barents Sea.

Produced in accordance with API 5LCP standards, coiled line pipe offers an economical alternative to conventional sub-sea flowlines and control lines, as well as onshore surface or buried flowlines for gathering system tie-ins and gas injection.
