The Cost Effective Use of Fibre Reinforced Composites Offshore

This report reviews areas where composites are finding application in the oil and gas industry, onshore and offshore. The most significant advances have been made in the areas of pipework and fluid handling, driven by light weight and corrosion resistance compared to metals. Modest, but significant progress has also been made in structural applications. Lessons are being learned from successful applications with the result that operators, design houses and contractors are now beginning to take a serious interest in their wider use. Expansion is therefore expected to continue into all sectors of the oil and gas industry.
