Industrial pipes

Porextherm’s WDS® Flexible Pipe insulation enables the construction of smaller, lighter and more cost effective double wall “Pipe in Pipe” pipelines. The world-wide increasing demand for fossil energy and the continuing threat of supply due to geopolitical events have conspired to push the limits of technology for the production and exploration of such energy sources.
Oil wells and platforms move further and further out to sea to tap new wells in ever larger depths.

This development for sure represents a large challenge to engineers. Long deep sea pipelines must be large enough to deliver sufficient quantities and should be sufficiently stable in addition, in order to resist the high pressure. Further more, sufficient flexibility should be given at the same time, so that the pipeline does not break due to the forces working under water.
