The year 2002 pipeline replacement program at Southern Area Oil Operation consisted of replacing the following carbon steel pipelines with reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP): two trunklines, one flowline, and one water-injection lateral. A discussion covers the recommended practices for RTP qualification procedures; system design; condition monitoring and repair procedures; field trials for gas applications as well as an experimental program that addresses the genetic issues that are fundamental to the qualification of RTP; a framework that allows Saudi Aramco facilities to utilize RTP with confidence and will form the basis of the development of Saudi Aramco standard; and the key applications for RTP, which include water, oil, and gas.
