Element is a global network of corrosion testing labs and a recognized world leader in the provision of corrosion testing services within the Oil & Gas industry. We provide effective programs to help reduce the cost of material failure and ensure that your assets are safe and will perform as expected once deployed.

With a global platform of corrosion testing services in the US, UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, we have the right combination of technical expertise, capabilities, and accreditations to support the oil and gas sector.

Our corrosion experts follow international testing standards and protocols such as ASTM, NACE, and API. We can assist you with a wide range of corrosion testing services and evaluations, material selection, corrosion assessments, recommending efficiencies, and preventative mitigation measures.


Corrosion testing service capabilities

Our global corrosion testing offers a full range of services, including pipeline corrosion testing for sour and non-sour applications. We provide our customers with real-life data on how the materials are likely to perform in specific conditions and inform their design, materials, or chemical selection decisions. 

Our corrosion labs are fully accredited to test both metallic and non-metallic materials, specializing in the qualification of “sour” service applications such as Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) or Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC).


Oil and gas corrosion services

We are proud to be among the world’s most trusted corrosion testing companies, and can assist you with corrosion analysis services for a range of applications. Staying at the forefront of corrosion testing, our engaged experts are continually developing new and innovative testing methods, such as SOHIC testing and Axial Full Ring testing under longitudinal tensile load.


The Element advantage 

Through expert analysis of simulation exposure data, we help our customers to reduce the future risk of corrosion damage to pipelines and other critical infrastructure assets. You can make certain that assets are fully utilized for their optimum service life and safety in oil and gas operations.
