Sulfide stress corrosion cracking technical standard for the oil and gas production industry now available

Keywords NACE, Standards, Oil and gas

NACE has also released the 2000 edition of its best-selling standard MR0175, Sulphide Stress Cracking Resistant Metallic Materials for Oilfield Equipment.

Preventing stress corrosion cracking of metal materials used in oil and gas production is a primary concern for both users and manufacturers.

NACE standard MR0175 specifies the metallic material requirements for resistance to SSC for petroleum production, drilling, gathering and flowing equipment, and field processing facilities to be used in H,S-bearing hydrocarbon service.

The standard is applicable to all components of equipment exposed to sour environments where failure by SSC would compromise the integrity of the pressure-containment system; and/or prevent the basic function of the equipment from occurring.

Sections of the standard address ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals; fabrication; boiling; platings and coatings; special components; valves and chokes; wells, flowlines, gathering lines, facilities, and field processing plants; and drilling and well-servicing equipment.

MR0175 is updated annually and is an American National Standard through ANSI.

MR0175 is also available in electronic form - PC*MR0175, a database in hypertext format with graphical menu and query system.

Electronic personal notes can be attached to files for future reference. PC*MR0175 can be purchased as software only, or as a special set including paper copies of MR0175-00 and Report IF192 - Use of Corrosion-Resistant Alloys in Oilfield Environments (1993 revision).
