DRIVERS AND TRENDS
The increased use of high strength steel has been an important trend in the industry, minimizing material- and freight cost and leading to more use of semi- and automatic welding processes. increased productivity by maximizing the number of joints made in a day, while minimizing welding failures best characterizes Pipeline welding

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
The industry covers a broad set of applications which include the mainline, tie-in and special pipe fabrication, pumping stations and Double Jointing applications. X65 steel is still broadly applied but X70 and X80 grades are common practice nowadays. Newer X100 solutions are also being developed. Welding consumables that provide matching or overmatching properties are required, depending on the applicable code or end-user specification. Very robust welding equipment that can withstand the tough conditions of pipeline welding are often used. It is essential that these requirements be met by a combination of products, solutions and support that can yield maximum productivity at minimum risk.
