Our services cover general and localized corrosion, coating degradation, materials compatibility, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, thermal fatigue, creep, high-temperature corrosion, microbiologically-influenced corrosion, and fracture mechanics. 

The laboratory has improved capacity to expose samples safely to H2S for qualifying materials for service in sour environments, an issue in many challenging oil and gas fields. Upgrading the facilities to test safely in Hydrogen is ongoing and becoming operational early in 2022.

The technology centre holds accreditation and certificates: 

  • Performance Standard for Protective Coatings for Cargo Oil Tanks of Crude Oil Carriers systems in accordance with IMO Res MSC.288(87)
  • Performance Standard for Protective Coatings for Dedicated Seawater Ballast Tanks in accordance with IMO MSC.215(82).
