Offshore pipelines and pipe components enable the subsea transportation of oil and gas recovered for offloading or storage. Offshore pipeline companies consider factors such as the operating environment and the type of product being transported when designing the pipelines and piping components.

Pipelines and hydraulic pipe fittings used in the offshore sector
The pipelines used in offshore oil and gas fields can be classified as infield pipelines, export pipelines, gathering pipelines, transmission pipelines and feeder pipelines. The pipes and pipelines are mostly made of either carbon steel or high-yield alloy steel and are protected with coatings and claddings.
Commonly used pipe components include hydraulic pipe fittings, forged fittings, butt weld fittings, hose fittings and adapters, quick release couplings, clamp pipe connector systems and alloy welded pipes.
Welding and protective coatings offered by offshore pipeline companies
Welding services provided by offshore pipeline companies ensure that the pipelines and their components are secured to avoid leakage and failure, while checking for crack susceptibility. The use of automated welding systems can improve welding productivity and quality.
Coatings protect pipelines and piping systems installed underwater from corrosion and damage. Offshore pipeline companies use corrosion-resistant alloy (CRA) coatings and other surface coatings such as hot-dip galvanised coatings.
Weld overlay cladding solutions provide further protection to pipelines and hydraulic pipe fittings to avoid the need to reconstruct pipelines and reapply anti-corrosive and wear-resistant materials.
