The birth and evolution of high temperature processed (HTP) linepipe steels

Significant long distance infrastructure projects, to expand the world’s oil and gas distribution network, have been steadily emerging across the continents.

The pipe needed for such initiatives is now often required to be of the higher strength API 5L X70 or X80 grades and also tends to be of much larger diameter with increased wall thickness. These combined changes reflect the need to quickly transport increasing volumes of hydrocarbons at higher pressures.
