Controlling corrosion: Case studies from amine plant operations

The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil and gas production industry is estimated to be $1.372 B.1 More significantly, failures due to corrosion can result in environmental releases and injury or death of plant personnel.

The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil and gas production industry is estimated to be $1.372 B.1 More significantly, failures due to corrosion can result in environmental releases and injury or death of plant personnel. Fortunately, the causes of corrosion can be identified, controlled and corrected by using the concepts and techniques discussed. This article includes five corrosion incident case studies collected over the past three decades of amine plant experience. The case studies demonstrate five different types of corrosion: uniform, pitting, chloride-induced crevice, cavitation and microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC). Emphasis is placed on solving corrosion problems, us
