This paper presents the results of the experimental investigations carried out by the authors in order to evaluate the changes in the physico-mechanical properties of fiberglass tubing used to transport fluids between different facilities. In the near future, water injection wells will be equipped with fiberglass tubing, as an alternative to the more traditional metal tubing. The mechanical properties of fiberglass material (ultimate tensile strength, impact energy, burst pressure) have been determined for sets of 5 specimens that have been maintained (at a temperature of 80°C) in different environments and with different exposure times (hydrochloric acid: 6/24/48 hours; acetic acid: 6/24/48 hours; hydrochloric acid + hydrofluoric acid: 6/24/48 hours; xylene: 1/2/3 months; condensates: 1/2/3 months).
