The injection of chemicals for gas systems is a common practice to prevent corrosion and asphaltene deposition. A laboratory study was conducted to evaluate 5 commercially available corrosion inhibitors and an asphaltene dispersant for a gas compression plant. This study was set out to look at the compatibility of a pipeline corrosion inhibitor with both an anti asphaltene and a gas compression inhibitor which is required to have a relatively large flammable point and resist the pressure and temperature of the process without igniting or aging. Also, the effect of precorroded surfaces was studied to establish its effect on the performance of the pipeline inhibitor. The efficiency of the products was evaluated through either coupon weight loss tests or polarization resistance. Corrosion inhibitor aging was carried out in autoclaves emulating operating conditions, subsequently, gel permeation chromatography (GPC), total nitrogen and viscosity measurements were performed on the products before and after aging to establish the variation of their physical and chemical properties. Additionally, X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) and energy dispersion spectroscopy (EDS) were used to identify corrosion products. From the study, an efficiency of 86% was obtained for a line inhibitor at a 45-PPM dosage (at 36 psi pCO2 and 0.006 psi of H2S at 120 F), lowering its efficiency to 76% after precorroding the surface for three days. The presence of asphaltene may reduce the corrosion rate; however, the injection of a dispersant accelerates the corrosion process. No significant changes in efficiency and physical properties were observed during the evaluation of one of the compression-line inhibitor mixtures tested. Key words: corrosion inhibitors, asphaltene dispersant, precorroded surfaces, weight loss, polarization resistance
