The effect of exposure to a hydrogen sulfide containing environment on mechanical and magnetic properties of an advanced sparingly alloyed Cr – Mo – V – Nb steel for oilfield pipes, which should meet strict requirements on the strength and resistance to stress sulfide corrosion cracking, is studied. It is shown that a 384-h hold in a medium of H2S does not affect substantially the characteristics of strength and cyclic endurance of the steel in the range of –70 ÷ +70°C. The magnetic parameters to be used for developing methods of nondestructive inspection of parts and structure components from the steel studied are suggested.
