2507 Duplex SS Corrosion in Risers in Offshore Sub Sea

The riser connects the floating rig to the subsea wellhead This work investigated the corrosion fatigue performance of 2507 duplex stainless steel for use as riser materials in environments containing high partial pressures of carbon dioxide (50 - 100 bar) and limited quantity of hydrogen sulfide (0 - 0.12 bar). The procedures developed for controlling oxygen and Fe2+ contamination as well as methods to evaluate the concentration of H2S in the autoclave are presented. The crack growth rates and ΔKth for these materials in the pressure environments were discussed along with procedures to obtain ΔKth, when they were below 5ksi√in. Low crack growth rates in the range of 1e-8 in/cycle were measured and the effect of sour environments was quantified. The fatigue crack growth rate in sour environments on 2507 duplex stainless steel is a 10x higher than in air.
