The effect of corrosion and corrosion stress cracking on deep sea oil rigs are costing the oil industry millions of pounds a year. Failures caused by corrosion have been a problem for hundreds of years and constantly put lives at risk. The solution presented in this paper aims to reduce the effects of corrosion on the structural members of a deep sea oil rig; firstly by reducing the corrosion rate and secondly by reducing the effects of corrosion stress cracking. This paper shows how I have achieved this through changing the composition and manufacturing process of S355 steel.
