Corrosion and Hydrogen Attack of Pipelines in Oil and Gas Fields

Abstract

Conditions for hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide corrosion of pipeline in oil,gas, and gas-condensate fields are discussed. Various factors are shown to affect theCO2 and H2S corrosion rate of steel in oil and gas field media. Protective propertiesof sulfide film as a function of partial pressures of H2S and CO2, pH and temperaturesare studied.
