    Coatings & Linings: High Operating Temperature Coating for Offshore Gas Pipelines

    Published: April 01, 2019
    Author(s): Loai Barakat, Axalta Coating Systems, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    With the continuing high demand for fossil fuels, such as crude oil and natural gas, most of the current oil fields globally are getting older and even deeper. This trend raises the bar on innovating new protective fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coatings that meet and...

    Corrosion Management: Probability of Pipeline Failure Caused by External Corrosion

    Published: February 01, 2019
    Author(s): R. Olalde, Metallurgic Engineering Department, School of Chemistry, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico City, Mexico

    The probability of failure (PoF) of pipelines caused by external corrosion is a function of three variables: exposure, mitigation, and resistance. Two primary exposure variables of a buried pipeline are soil resistivity and pH. In this work, the PoF caused by...
