Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is the corrosion of or corrosion-related cracking of carbon steels and stainless steels underneath thermal insulation. It is a serious threat to asset integrity management, particularly for the oil and gas, and petrochemical-related industries. It is a hidden threat, because it cannot be seen and the necessary measures have to be taken in order for CUI to be mitigated and kept under control. The controllable factors that are involved in CUI include equipment design, selection of insulation, protective coating, weather protection, installation procedures and maintenance practices. Water must be present for CUI to occur, which can result from breaks in insulation cladding, poor installation and maintenance or the combination of the two.
Keeping in mind the oil and gas trends on the regional and international market, the Kulevi Oil Terminal management continuously studies the possibilities for increasing a variety of transshipped oil and oil products in order to improve the competitiveness level of the terminal in the region.
