This new standard provides guidance for corrosion control personnel, coating applicators, and coating manufacturers in providing more effective corrosion protection for offshore structures, which are being placed in deeper waters and have become larger, more complex, and more expensive. Control of corrosion on offshore structures is necessary to sustain oil and gas production, provide safe working and living areas, and avoid potential harm to the environment. For this standard, "offshore structures" includes metallic offshore structures such as fixed-leg platforms, tension-leg platforms (TLPs), semisubmersibles, spar platforms, and floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs). The standard covers coating materials, coating test protocol and acceptance criteria, surface preparation, coating application, quality assurance and control, and repair methods. It also covers generic protective coating systems, fastener coatings, and corrosion control of flanges, pipe supports, and stainless steel tubing.
