On an increasingly frequent basis, pipeline operators are using risk-based decision making to prioritize cross-company expenditures. Due to the long-term mitigation benefits of Cathodic Protection (CP), when planning external corrosion mitigation activities, pipeline operators typically prioritize mitigation of deeper anomalies for integrity expenditures due to their higher Probability of Failure (PoF). However, anomalies that are not receiving adequate CP or those experiencing electrical interference may remain unaddressed using this rationale. This paper presents both a qualitative and semi-quantitative approach to support the quantification of the risk reduction benefits gained from external corrosion prevention on pipelines. This can help in the efficient prioritization of both pro-active and re-active integrity repair activities. Supporting examples are also discussed to help explain the intended use of the methodology and the interpretation of the results.
Revised in 2020! This standard on corrosion prevention and control (CPC) planning is intended to support future CPC improvements to national acquisition and sustainment of equipment, systems, facilities, and infrastructure at an acceptable cost. It provides a standardized framework for a supplier’s plan to control corrosion of supplied products and structures. The standard is intended for use by public and private facility owners/acquisition agencies that require their suppliers to provide corrosion prevention and control procedures as a deliverable provided with the purchased product, installation, or system. The standard includes:

New in 2020! This standard presents accepted methods and practices regarding the use of cathodic protection (CP) for the control of external corrosion on buried or submerged carbon steel, stainless steel, gray cast iron, ductile cast iron, copper, and aluminum piping systems at nuclear power plants. This standard may be useful at facilities other than nuclear power plants that contain complex networks of buried or submerged piping, which may be composed of more than one material and may or may not be grounded.
New NACE TEST METHOD! The purpose of this NACE International standard test method is to specify test methods and test conditions used to evaluate thermal properties, insulation values, and performance/integrity before and after thermal aging of insulative coatings. Testing for corrosion resistance is not included in this test method.
To stay competitive in the corrosion industry, companies must continually be looking for more efficient, safe, and cost-effective ways to inspect and maintain assets. There are many opportunities for the increased use of robotic solutions in all aspects of the corrosion industry, but the primary reasons focus on limiting human intervention for both safety and accuracy.
This book presents the reader with multiple examples of the use of robotic unmanned and remote-controlled systems, be they underground, on the ground, or in the air.

The “CorrCompilation: Oilfield Production Chemicals” series covers production, selection, performance evaluation, application, monitoring, and optimization of oilfield chemicals. The oilfield chemicals presented are corrosion inhibitors, biocides, scale inhibitors, and drag reducers. The editor, Joseph Itodo Emmanuel, believes it is a “must-have reference book” for corrosion engineers in the field, technicians, and field operation supervisors due to its broad spectrum.
He suggests the compilation could be used for a university-level engineering or scientific course on oilfield chemicals or tailored training to enhance the technical knowledge of field personnel on oilfield chemical application and management.
Since this CorrCompilation series consists of 90 NACE technical papers or articles, it is published in three volumes.
Volume 1: Development and Selection
Volume 2: Performance Evaluation and Application
Volume 3: Monitoring and Optimization
Each volume contains current research findings, field treatment practices, best practices, and scientific and engineering concepts.
This CorrCompilation series focuses primarily on equilibrium-formed scales, where an aqueous fluid changes from an unsaturated equilibrium state to a saturated and supersaturated state and then solids may start to form. These types of fouling minerals include alkaline earth salts, silicates, alkaline salts (NaCl), sulfides, and under specific circumstances, metal sulfide salts that form through equilibrium changes. While corrosion product scales are not the subject of this book, the importance of corrosion product layers to the deposition of other scales will be described.
Since this is a CorrCompilation and more than 90 copies of NACE papers are included, the work is published in four volumes. The editor, Wayne W. Frenier, FNACE, provides an extensive introduction to each volume, offering the reader a thorough mix of history, theory, and engineering techniques and methods for addressing scale.
Volume 1: Introduction to Equipment Subject to Inorganic Scale
Volume 2: Current Mechanisms for Understanding Inorganic Scale Formation and Deposition
Volume 3: Chemistry and Application of Scale Inhibitors
Volume 4: Alternative Methods of Scale Control
Predicting where, when, and, most importantly, how much scale will deposit and adhere to a critical surface has proven to be very challenging. This second volume, "Current Mechanisms for Understanding Inorganic Scale Formation and Deposition," will review literature for both the formation and deposition of the primary fouling mineral scales, CaCO3, CaSO4(X•H2O), BaSO4, metal sulfides, and silica/silicates.
