  • A new methodology designed to address the major safety threat and multi-billion-dollar cost posed by corrosion under insulation (CUI) has been published by DNV GL, the technical advisor to the oil and gas industry.
  • CUI, a type of corrosion which arises when water becomes trapped between insulation and the piping and vessels it is designed to protect, has contributed to more than 20% of all major oil and gas accidents in the EU alone over the past 35 years.
  • DNV GL’s RP provides a systematic approach to assessing, mitigating and updating CUI risk.
