CONTROLLED ROLLED STEELS FOR OFFSHORE PIPELINES

Controlled rolled X60, X65 and X70 steels, originally developed to meet the stringent requirements of Arctic pipelining, have been used in offshore oil and gas pipelines. The technology and application of these acicular ferrite and pearlite reduced steels, which have been used successfully in several North Sea submarine pipelines, are discussed. Fracture toughness and field weldability of these low carbon steels are highlighted.
