Book Description

This book looks at the applications of coating in piping, valves, actuators in the offshore oil and gas industry. Providing a key guide for professionals and students alike, it highlights specific coating standards within the industry, including ISO, NORSOK, SSPC and NACE.

In the corrosive environment of a sea water setting, coatings to protect pipes, valves and actuators are essential. This book provides both the theory behind these coatings, as well as practical application, including case studies from multinational companies. It begins by covering different offshore zones and their corrosivity level, alongside the different type of external corrosion such as stress cracking and hydrogen induced stress cracking. Key coatings discussed are zinc rich coating, thermal spray zinc or aluminum, phenolic epoxy, and passive fire protection, with a review of their defects and potential failures. It also details the role of a coating inspector and explains how to diagnose faults. Case studies from companies including AkerSolutions, Baker Hughes, Equinor and British Petroleum illustrate the wide range of industrial applications of coating technologies.

The book will be of interest to engineers and students working and studying in materials, coating, mechanical, piping or petroleum engineering.
