Directional drilling among topics covered in new handbook of PE pipe

Feb. 13, 2007

Irving, TX — Pipe selection and design process of polyethylene (PE) pipe for horizontal directional drilling is one of the highlights in the recently published Handbook of Polyethylene Pipe.

The Plastics Pipe Institute developed the comprehensive handbook to assist designers, contractors and owners in designing and installing HDPE piping applications. While directional drilling itself is not a new concept, specific considerations such as pullback force capability, collapse resistance and long-term performance of the PE pipe once it’s installed in the bore-hole are explained. .

“Polyethylene pipe is ideally suited for these demanding installations because of its continuous jointless fused system and because of its flexibility, corrosion resistance and seismic resistance,” says Camille George Rubeiz, P.E., director of engineering at PPI. .

Other topics in the hardbound Handbook of PE Pipe include design, engineering properties, PE pipe and fittings manufacturing, specifications, joining procedures, marine installations, and pipeline rehab.
