This handbook is aimed at increasing awareness of external (atmospheric) corrosion on offshore installations.

It assists users to understand where and why particular external corrosion mechanisms are often encountered and to outline what could be done in order to mitigate the cause. Managers and engineers who encounter corrosion issues in their day to day jobs will also find the handbook a useful reference tool, particularly when communicating issues more widely.

The areas of external corrosion covered include examples of structures, process and electrical equipment. Also included are those from corrosion under insulation and stainless steels mechanisms. As fatigue failure is also seen as a significant threat, the opportunity has been taken to include examples of vibration fatigue and fretting.

This is an essential handbook for all process support personnel tasked with the day to day management and fabric maintenance. It provides an excellent way to raise awareness amongst key managers and engineers who are less familiar with these issues.

The handbook is produced in handy A5 and A6 sizes with a sturdy waterproof cover, to encourage its use by on-site personnel.
