Material Selection, Coatings and Cathodic Protection


Fluor's corrosion experts have experience with a range of pipeline materials, coatings and cathodic protection, from very sour fluids, corrosive multi-phase fluids, high pressure to 650barg, to high temperatures up to 160˚C. Material selection experience includes steel pipe, clad, exotic and plastic pipe. Internal corrosion control options include corrosion inhibitor selection, testing and injection rate determination, or alternatively allow for a corrosion allowance in the design.

Fluor's experience around the world from sabkha to swamp to arctic pipelines presents a unique understanding of the sensitive environmental factors that affect pipeline corrosion and cathodic protection. In contrast, Fluor also has experience with desert pipelines that are subject to a variety of other corrosion challenges.
