A practical process for managing the threat of circumferential Stress Corrosion Cracking
In recent years there have been a number of pipeline failures attributed to circumferential cracking. These failures remain rare but are often unexpected (a hazard not previously identified or included in any risk assessment) and can create a major hazard with significant disruption to pipeline operations.
More than 25.000 km of pipelines are installed every year and demand is continually rising. Approximately $300 billion need to be invested worldwide. The operation, maintenance and rehabilitation of pipelines require the best materials, techniques and employees. In order to provide all interested parties an opportunity to be informed about the latest research results and developments in the industry we have launched the Pipeline Technology Journal.
The Journal is distributed to more than 30,000 international decision-makers and experts in the pipeline industry.
Hard copies will be handed out at international pipeline events.
