A close-interval potential (CIP) data survey on ~154 km of Crude Oil/Gas pipeline networks. This aim was to generate corrosion data to determine weak sections of the pipelines/flowlines and, to ascertain the effectiveness of the CP system and integrity of the Crude Oil/Gas pipeline networks. The pipeline networks were found safe for continued operation under its present condition.
In seawater, higher strength nickel-copper alloys are used as alternatives to copper alloys. These can be susceptible to chloride stress corrosion cracking and hydrogen embrittlement in conditions where cathodic protection is utilized. Copper-Nickel-Tin alloys (CuNiSn) show low corrosion rates in the free and coupled conditions. Resistance to hydrogen embrittlement is demonstrated.
