PIPE CORROSION-CONCLUSION NEW GUIDELINES PROMISE MORE ACCURATE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT
K.E.W. Coulson, R.G. Worthingham NOVA Corp. Alberta Calgary Results of research by NOVA Corp. of Alberta have significant implications for line-pipe corrosion assessment. The background of this research and types of corrosion studied were covered in Part 1 (OGJ, Apr. 9, p. 54). Burst-test data from NOVA's research have led to more accurate damage-assessment guidelines which, if employed, could prevent unnecessary and expensive pipe repair or removals.
