SINTEF (a Norwegian research Co.) made studies of the sensitivity to hydrogen embrittlement (HE) of super 13Cr martensitic stainless steels. These tests are summarised in this paper. Both slow strain rate (SSR), 4-point-bend and fracture mechanics testing have been conducted. The effect of temperature, cathodic protection (CP), applied potential, strain rate and H2S were investigated.
Much progress has been made in testing of offshore paint systems in the past 10 years. But more work is needed to understand what is happening and give us the confidence to correlate the laboratory accelerated test to the field service life of offshore coating systems. The new NACE Standards are a move in the right direction.
This work was undertaken to explore the possibility to extend the limits of 316L to higher temperatures. The large scale test consists of a full ring pipe which is stressed externally and exposed internally to the test fluid. The small scale tests are four-point-bend (4PB) tests in accordance with ISO15156-31 and EFC172.
For pipe installed through bore methods, visual inspections and electronic coating holiday detectors during installation becomes impractical. This paper/presentation will discuss the steps we took as a pipeline operator to find a practical approach to performing a coating quality test on bored pipe.
This exam is the first step for the candidate pursuing certification as a Coating Applicator. This exam is for the candidate who has knowledge of surface preparation, cleanliness, environmental conditions, coating mixtures, coating application, and safety.

NEW EDITION!! For nearly 50 years Control of Pipeline Corrosion, written by A.W. Peabody, has been the most trusted resource in the field of pipeline corrosion. Now completely revised and updated, the third edition of this classic reference continues the tradition of excellence by providing the most thorough and authoritative coverage of the prevention and control of pipeline corrosion, and now includes a chapter on AC interference.
Peabody's Control of Pipeline Corrosion, Third Edition, edited by Ronald Bianchetti, blends traditional corrosion engineering practices with modern technologies to make this the single source for corrosion control. Chapters have updated information and graphics to expand on the user-friendly nature of the original book.

This book provides the reader with a history of generic pipeline coating types, technical information about testing, application and use. There is very practical information about selection and evaluation methods for each type of coating system to help those who design pipeline systems. There is also discussion of how coatings work with cathodic protection, cathodic protection shielding by coatings and other related issues with the various coating systems related to CP.
