MR0175 is a federally mandated standard in the United States and is globally recognized as ISO 15156. MR0175/ISO 15156 address requirements and recommendations for selection and qualification of materials for H2S service in oil and natural gas production. MR0175 addresses all forms of cracking caused by H2S and applies to equipment using conventional elastic design criteria.
The standard addresses requirements and recommendations for the selection and qualification of carbon and low-alloy steels, corrosion-resistant alloys, and other alloys for service in equipment used in oil and natural gas production and natural gas treatment plants in H2S-containing environments.
It is also the most complex and most misunderstood standard. Compendiums of interpretations, areas of opinions, lists of corrections and updates are issued regularly. This creates dated and conflicting information in the marketplace, but NACE International offers instruction from the world’s leading industry experts.
