What is Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes (RTP) in the oil and gas industry
RTPs are a type of plastic piping that are reinforced with high-strength fibers, such as glass or aramid, to provide additional strength and durability. They have become increasingly popular in the oil and gas industry due to their ability to withstand high pressures and temperatures, as well as their resistance to corrosion and erosion.
Compared to traditional steel pipes, RTPs are lighter, easier to install, and require less maintenance, making them a more cost-effective solution for pipeline transportation. In addition, they have a longer lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing the impact on the environment.
Overall, the use of RTPs in the oil and gas industry allows for more efficient and sustainable operations, aligning with the mission of companies like ONGC to use advanced technology to achieve their goals.
