Sponsored by: World Oil, Petroleum Economist, DES and MCEDD
The deepwater/subsea market is in the early days of a long-duration upcycle, as operators seek to replenish baseload, low-decline-rate oil and gas production. In pursuing this goal, operators are seeking to further improve efficiencies and economics, so technical innovation remains crucial. This e-book collection of recent World Oil articles reflects advances in various deepwater/subsea categories, including tie-back engineering, casing drilling, well delivery, subsea umbilical installation, improved FPSO performance, deepwater MPD operations and riser life extension, among others.

How Additive Manufacturing Can Aid the Oil, Gas, and Chemical Industry: Corrosion-Proofing by Infusion of Interstitial Solute, Exemplified for Alloy 22

AM (additive manufacturing) is a rapidly developing field for rapid prototyping and producing near-net-shape products that are impossible to produce by conventional methods. In this article, we prove the concept of corrosion proofing of AM alloy parts by low-temperature infusion of interstitial solute for the example of Alloy 22 parts made by LPBF (laser powder-bed fusion). For post-processing of these parts, we employed our newly developed process of LTNC-SRP (low-temperature nitrocarburization by solid-reagent pyrolysis). The results highlight how this new process can specifically address problems inherent to alloy parts made by AM.
