Sharing Chemical Engineer's Challenging, Exciting, Interesting and Stimulating Life...



Pipeline Corrosion

Deep. Remote. Environmentally sensitive. Situation like this make you appreciate Tenaris (a company which provide good pipeline services). Tough challenges call for innovative solutions: New products, continuous upgrades, advance in metallurgy. Offshore is a toughest place to be. Hence, we need the best and the toughest pipeline, a high strength and corrosion resistant which can take the worse of sour service, deep water application in stride. I've been in several offshore platforms, and seriously I saw very bad corrosion taking place due to the rough and salty environment which encourages oxidation process to take place. Pipeline corrosion is one area to maintain and protect.
