A new international standard is likely for steel tank coatings used in the oil and gas industry, under a new working group at the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

The Standards Working Group (ISO TC 67 WG11) on Coating and Lining of Equipment and Structures in Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry recently held its first meeting to discuss the draft standard.

The new Standards Working Group on Coating and Lining of Equipment and Structures in Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry was pushed, and is led, by representatives from Qatar Petroleum.

The group is part of Technical Committee 67 on materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. The new panel will help develop new standards and update existing ones.

Qatar Leadership

The group is chaired by Qatar, making it the first Arab nation to lead an international technical working group in the petroleum industry, according to the Qatar Tribune.

Both Qatar Petroleum and the country’s Ministry of Environment had pushed for the new group, and two QP officials hold key leadership positions.

Muayad Ajjawi, head of standards & regulations development at QP, is the convener of the group; Yasser Abu Alomrin, a senior coating inspector from QP, is the project leader.

First Meeting

The group’s first project is the development of a new standard on “Coating and Lining of Internal Surfaces of Above-Ground Storage Tanks.” The standard will establish international requirements for corrosion mitigation of internal surfaces of steel storage tanks used in the petroleum industry, the Qatar Tribune reported.

The group’s first project is a draft standard for internal coatings used on above-ground steel storage tanks.

The project was discussed at the working group’s first meeting, held in January, and a final draft will be sent soon to the working group’s members: 29 specialists from 12 countries.

The group also discussed corrosion problems in crude storage tanks as well possible solutions, such as the use of coatings and linings. Qatar Petroleum also made a presentation on corrosion under insulation.

Focus on Corrosion Protection

Going forward, the new Working Group will focus generally on internal and external corrosion protection of petrochem equipment and structures.

The new working group can be reached through TC 67’s Secretariat, the Netherlands Standardization Institute (NEN). The contact is Harold Pauwels, manager of Energy Resources.

ISO is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. The organization is a network of the national standards institutes of 162 countries (one member per country), coordinated by a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland. Some member institutes are governmental; others stem from the private sector.

In the development of standards pertaining to coatings of tanks, does the ISO group refer to SSPC in any manner? Does SSPC have a delegate or other liason contact into the ISO group or its parent organization?

The ISO standard pertaining to coatings of tanks is still being drafted and the final draft has not been released, so I cannot comment on if SSPC standards are being referenced. I am the SSPC delegate for the TC 35 SC 12 and SC 14. Based on the information stated above I am going to inquire about becoming a member of TC 67 WG 11.

Will the final draft be made available to interested parties to view or comment on?
