Cracking pipeline corrosion

A new video explores how corrosion research by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is informing best practice in the oil and gas industry.

NPL is working with industry and academia to understand typical pipeline failure mechanisms and mitigate the risk of loss of containment. The video features NPL's recent work investigating the effect of typical welding procedures on sulphide stress corrosion cracking of stainless steel pipeline materials.
