This paper presents the results of a project jointly funded by PRCI and EWI to evaluate the welding of X100 pipe grades using commercially available welding consumables. The welding trials included manual, semi-automatic and mechanized welding procedures. It was found that the combination of Pulsed GMAW and ER100S-1 (using a mixed shielding gas) produced both excellent Charpy impact and CTOD performance, but could result in undermatched girth welds if the pipe significantly exceeds minimum strength requirements. Although ER120 S-1 provides an additional margin of safety in strength, which should accommodate variations in X-100 pipe properties, the toughness results were marginal at −10°C. The risk of weld metal hydrogen cracking in X100 girth welds was also investigated.
