This paper presents the latest laboratory results on iron sulfide dissolver evaluation. The recently developed dissolvers were studied for their dissolving powers using iron sulfide scale solids and the corrosion rate to mild steel at elevated temperature. Based on these results, the technical gaps and future developments for iron sulfide dissolvers are discussed.
Biocorrosion or microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a major problem in the oil and gas industry. Biofilms are the culprits of MIC. In this work, D-amino acids were used to enhance two biocides, alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride (ADBAC) and tributyl tetradecyl phosphonium chloride (TTPC), to treat a field biofilm consortium on C1018 carbon steel coupons.
