DNV GL, Evonik, and Airborne Oil & Gas Partnership in the Qualification of Carbon Fiber Thermoplastic Composite Pipes

March 30 2020

DNV GL certifies Carbon Fiber PA12 for use in Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) for oilfield applications. In February 2020, several years of hard work paid off for the pioneers of TCP with the release of the first full carbon fiber based material qualification certificate that complies with the DNV GL ST-F119 TCP industry qualification standard.

The comprehensive development and qualification program for the Evonik VESTAPE carbon fiber PA12 composite tape took several years to complete and is now qualified for crude oil sour service up to 80°C.

As the first of its kind, this project has proven the robustness of the DNV GL qualification standard and its ability to be used to build the foundation for what will be the most advanced carbon fiber based TCP pipe system available for commercial use.

Martin Strande, Head of Department Pipelines, Materials and Testing at DNV GL added: “Our DNVGL-ST-F119 Standard sets the benchmark for safety requirements for thermoplastic composite pipes in offshore applications, and the certification of Evonik’s VESTAPE PA12 carbon fiber composite tapes to the Standard is one of the industry’s firsts.”
