NACE MR0175 and the Stainless Steel Industry

Stainless Steel World magazine invited us to write an article about NACE MR0175 and the stainless steel industry, this article was published in the June 2016 issue.

Stainless steel producers and distributors involved in the oil & gas industry are often required to supply materials that meet the requirements of NACE MR0175. This standard outlines the requirements for metallic materials for use in H2S containing environments in oil and gas production. H2S gas, which is present in some oil and gas production environments, is deadly in concentrations as low as 100ppm. In addition to being poisonous H2S is corrosive and can lead to various forms of hydrogen related cracking. This article presents a brief overview of NACE MR0175 covering its origin, requirements for stainless steels and the relevance of this document within the regulatory framework.
