HyF-Lex – Field life extension through controlling the combined material degradation of fatigue and hydrogen
The HyF-Lex project seeks to increase the fundamental understanding of the mechanisms inherent to hydrogen assisted fatigue crack growth in steels, as well as contributing to a model framework for assessment of hydrogen-assisted fatigue.
SMACC – Studies of materials behaviour for future cold climate applications
It is estimated that a large part of the world's remaining hydrocarbon resources are located in the Arctic areas. The climatic conditions make it demanding to explore the resources. Thus, the overall objective of the SMACC-project is to develop robust and cost effective materials and solutions for use in Arctic areas.
Hydrogen-induced degradation of offshore steels in ageing infrastructure – models for prevention and prediction - HIPP
Objective: The primary objective of HIPP is to develop a model framework which describes and couples environment-assisted hydrogen degradation mechanisms at different length and time scales towards a predictive mechanism-based integrity assessment approach for oil and gas steel infrastructure.

ROP, Knowledge basis for repair contingency of pipelines
The overall objective of the present project is to establish basic knowledge on subsea hyperbaric repair welding and degradation of clad and lined pipes, as well as C-Mn steel, as studied by laboratory experiments in combination with numerical modelling of processes and material properties.
