Coating solution for the oil and gas industry
Jakob Albertsen has worked with the oil and gas industry for more than 20 years, and in that time, we have coated a large number of components and equipment for the purpose of protecting them against the substantial stress to which they are exposed offshore.
The following components should preferably be coated internally with ceramic coating:
- Separator tanks
- Deaerator tanks
- Closed drain tanks
- Dual media filter tanks
- Pig launchers and pig receivers
If it is necessary to carry out the coating task onboard the installation, Jakob Albertsen mobilises its own employees to carry out these tasks. Equipment which can be transported onshore for inspection, service and repair or new equipment is either coated at our workshops or in cooperation with another subcontractor.
For structures, ISO 12944 industrial coating is often used. We differentiate between below and above the waterline. Below the waterline, we use strong epoxy coatings, and in the splash zone, we use the even stronger, typically glass reinforced polyesters. Above the waterline, we often use coating according to C5M or CX, typically a zinc-rich epoxy and a UV-resistant top coat, with a total layer thickness of at least 300 micrometres.
For internal coating of production facilities, we often use ceramic coating, as the corrosive and chemical stress is high. The choice of coating is made based on the need for resistance to media, temperature, wear and chemicals.
