Lambda’s LPB Eliminates Sour Well Sulfide Cracking

Stress Corrosion Cracking in Steel: Untreated vs LPB

As more deep wells and offshore resources are developed, this cost-effective method of mitigating hydrogen sulfide related cracking will be an invaluable tool to reduce operational costs and the potential for environmental damage.

Lambda Technologies has developed a surface treatment for oil field tubulars that can prevent oil and gas spills caused by hydrogen sulfide cracking. Low plasticity burnishing (LPB®) applies a deep, beneficial surface layer of compressive residual stress to mitigate hydrogen sulfide cracking. By putting the exposed surface in high residual compression far…
