This standard presents procedures for applying liquid coatings to the interior of various types of oilfield production equipment used primarily for the processing and storage of corrosive fluids in oilfield operations. It also details various factors required to obtain a satisfactory coating, including production equipment design and fabrication considerations, surface preparation, coating application, and inspection. This standard is maintained by Task Group 506.
Provides guidance and best practices to users of interim, or temporary, coatings for corrosion protection of metals, including performance criteria, selection, surface preparation and application, evaluation of coatings, and other usage requirements. Quality control criteria are listed to enable the manufacturer and user to select appropriate test procedures to maintain prescribed standards. The standard is intended to assist the new buyer or user as well as the experienced user of interim coatings in the proper selection and evaluation of these coatings.
A corrosion management system (CMS) for assets is described in this Standard. The framework is intended to be applicable to a wide variety of asset types and is not focused on a particular industry or sector. Non-mandatory guidance is provided throughout this Standard to aid users with implementing the Standard. The framework in this Standard can be utilized to develop a stand-alone CMS or to integrate corrosion management into an organization’s existing management system. Additionally, some processes covered in this framework may already be implemented by an organization, for example, management of change (MOC). An organization may modify their existing processes to address the elements identified in this framework.
Revised in 2020! This standard on corrosion prevention and control (CPC) planning is intended to support future CPC improvements to national acquisition and sustainment of equipment, systems, facilities, and infrastructure at an acceptable cost. It provides a standardized framework for a supplier’s plan to control corrosion of supplied products and structures. The standard is intended for use by public and private facility owners/acquisition agencies that require their suppliers to provide corrosion prevention and control procedures as a deliverable provided with the purchased product, installation, or system. The standard includes:

In the spring of 2014, a new SSPC-PA21 standard is scheduled to be published. Despite the fact that this is the second major revision in as many years, new technologies and techniques have been introduced since the 2014 standard was revised and sent to ballot. Some examples include a factory-calibrated coating thickness gauge with pre-defined surface profiles, as well as a scanning probe designed to be slid across a cured coating while taking readings in real time. When these new technologies are put into practice, dramatic improvements in overall inspection times and data accuracy can be seen.
SSPC-SP 13/NACE No. 6, “Surface Preparation of Concrete” has just been revised and given a major face lift. It is quite different than the previous 2003 version with more content. It became evident during the revision of the standard that there was wide and intense interest and so this presentation is meant as an introduction to the new standard highlighting the revisions.
This paper will provide information on the standards used in evaluating and determining correct application and selection of protective coatings and linings used in the wastewater industry. It will also highlight certification that can be used in evaluating contractors and inspection companies used in the coating and lining process.
