Fatigue Performance of High Strength Riser Materials in Sour Environments (07121-1403)

Southwest Research Institute - Principal Investigator:  Steven Hudak

Objective:  High strength riser steels which resist fatigue damage in a sour corrosive environment  offer significant weight advantages for deepwater structures. Southwest Research Institute is laboratory testing the compatibility of six high strength materials for their performance in such riser service.
Period of Performance:  December 15, 2008 to June 30, 2011
