Guide to nickel alloys in subsea environments

18 May 2018

Subsea environments in the oil and gas industry are difficult for operations. The presence of seawater puts materials and equipment under pressure and leaves them open to corrosive attack from outside elements. Equally, they are subject to corrosion from the inside too, as they are used for the exploration, drilling and development of oil and gas fields in UK waters.
