Steel risers for deepwater offshore oil and gas field developments are subject to seawater on the external surfaces, produced fluids on the internal surfaces and to fatigue loading. This paper reviews current knowledge of the fatigue behaviour of welded carbon-manganese steel for risers in relevant environments. A substantial body of data exists relating to the performance of girth welds in seawater with cathodic protection and consequently recent attention has been turned to establishing the fatigue performance in the internal environment, which may contain water, CO2 , H2 S and chloride and bicarbonate ions.
