The article provides an overview of different modes of failures in composite pipeline connections. Non-metallic spoolable (SCP) and reinforced thermoplastic pipelines (RTP) of different makes will be addressed. The article is based on actual case histories of pipeline failures (root cause analysis). Numerous factors contributing to failures and recommendations are discussed.
