Abstract [en]

Precipitation Hardened (PH) Ni-based alloys have proved to be sensitive to Hydrogen Induced Stress Cracking (HISC), and HISC related failures in the Oil and Gas industry have been experienced in the case of UNS N07718, UNS N07725 and UNS N07716. Slow Strain Rate Tensile (SSRT) tests conducted under cathodic polarization gave encouraging results as a means to evaluate HISC resistance when applied to UNS N07718, enabling the discrimination of acceptable and unacceptable microstructures as according to API 6A CRA. As a consequence, an extensive test program was launched on several PH Ni grades, a program sponsored by several petroleum companies. The main objectives of this program were to develop a test method to allow for the evaluation of HISC resistance, in order to rank materials and possibly define acceptance criteria for each material, and also to better understand the relationship between microstructure and HISC resistance. Twenty-eight industrial heats of PH Ni Alloys of eight material grades were fully characterized (microstructure, mechanical properties) and evaluated using the SSRT test method under applied cathodic polarization. The yield strength of the materials tested was in the range 120 to 160 ksi. The quantitative susceptibility of the materials to HISC was established using the plastic elongation pCP and the plastic elongation ratio pCP/ pinert. Test results showed that some PH alloys that exhibited acceptable microstructures, in accordance with API 6ACRA, did not necessarily exhibit high plastic elongation ratios. The need to implement HISC related tests in the selection of PH Ni base alloys for Oil and Gas applications is indicated
