Substitution of a steel spool for PE-X coated for pumping formation water.

The Challenge

Enap Sipetrol Ecuador, is a branch of the Chilean state oil company Enap, is the operator and owner of 42% of Block 28 in the southeastern area of Ecuador.
In their process plant where it was necessary to transport formation water, they had a steel spool coated internally with epoxy paint and it corroded easily due to the aggressiveness of the fluid.

Pexgol Solution

The client decided to replace the steel spool with Pexgol. It was installed in October 2021 and inspected in March 2022 and no type of corrosion or adhesion of solids was observed.
