Stainless steel corrosion arresting
A barrier wrap coating has now been approved for use within Woodside to arrest pitting corrosion of stainless steel and has started to be applied across several offshore facilities. There is potential for large long terms savings by using a barrier wrap coating to arrest corrosion on piping rather than replacing. Long term testing using barrier wrap coatings to arrest pitting corrosion is ongoing. Newly approved alternative coating materials, such as Humidur, will be tested in 2020.
