Chapter 8

Corrosion

Abstract

Corrosion in the refining industry has been known for almost 100 years and the harsh environments in which many platforms operate are also causing a considerable number of corrosion-related issues. In fact, the offshore environment is highly corrosive and special stresses put additional pressure on the coating systems used for protection of the steel structures. This chapter focuses on offshore maintenance and the importance of selecting quality coating systems and to ensure that they are applied correctly and under the right conditions.
