Hydrogen blistering usually occurs in systems where oil & gas contain large amounts of hydrogen sulphide. At high temperatures, when hydrogen atoms diffuse into the steel, hydrogen molecules form an internal defect or inclusion that usually migrate to become a small delamination. Over time, this can form voids or blisters which lower the equipment MAWP (maximum allowable working pressure) and may lead to equipment failure.
