Oil & Gas Pipeline Repair

The oil and gas industry use SylWrap Pipe Repair Kits and the Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System for pipeline repair, strengthening and reinforcement in harsh and aggressive environments.

Breached pipelines carrying potentially hazardous substances need to be sealed as soon as possible. SylWrap Kits allow for permanent repairs temperature resistant to 120ÂșC and pressure resistant to 30 bar to be made in under 30 minutes without the need for any formal training.

Preferable to repairing a leaking gas or oil pipeline is to prevent breaches from occurring in the first place. The four-stage Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System is used by the industry to strengthen pipelines against corrosion, chemical attack, wear, abrasion and impact damage.

The SPRS involves using a mixture of specialist epoxy putties, pastes and coatings, alongside composite repair wraps to create the optimum repair.

Surface profile is restored by rebuilding weakened and degraded sections; the pipe substrate is coated to protect it from attack and prevent future breaches; and the pipeline is reinforced with a composite shell, providing additional strength via an impact-resistant layer of protection.

Refurbishment carried out using the Sylmasta Pipe Repair System can extend the lifespan of pipelines by up to 20 years. For more information on the SPRS, please contact Sylmasta and a technician will help formulate the most suitable combination of products for a specific repair.

As well as oil and gas pipelines, Sylmasta products have been used to repair hydrogen lines and pipes in petrochemical and desalination plants.

Sylmasta also manufacture SylShield, a specialist composite bandage with extreme thickness which protects pipelines undergoing intense processes such as trenchless pipe installation.
