Using NACE standards to protect against corrosion

Corrosion is the scourge of the oil and gas industry worldwide, eating up maintenance budgets and often causing incidents. The term corrosion comes from the Latin word corrodere, which means “to gnaw to pieces.” American Petroleum Institute (API) 571 details more than 25 different industrial corrosion mechanisms, many of which pertain to upstream oil and…

The importance of API 20E and API 20F bolting standards

Throughout development of the industrialized economy, bolts, screws, studs, nuts and other miscellaneous fasteners, known collectively as bolting, have largely been deemed commodity items. In most commercial applications, a bolting failure bore limited consequences. Typically, a failed fastener was simply removed, and its replacement installed. There were limited implications to bolting failures, typically a few…
