Using engineered surface coatings to prevent corrosion of offshore components
Metal corrosion is a costly fact of life in the oil and gas industry. Surface deterioration of the metal components used in offshore production processes can lead to premature and often sudden failure, with the risk of costly, unscheduled downtime and the threat of hydrocarbon leaks.
In this white paper, Andrew Courtney of Surface Technology looks at the causes and consequences of corrosion and wear, and explores the steps that can be taken for the prevention of corrosion in component design, specification and manufacture.
The paper includes an analysis of the surface coating options available, the benefits of each, and the application process.
