The aim of this work is to analyze the role of corrosion management in prevention of corrosion accidents related primarily to safety of personnel and the environment. This is achieved by anti-corrosion measures, corrosion monitoring, regular inspection, study of each accident, implementation of meetings, publications, education, and knowledge transfer.
The sour model had been previously developed to predict localized internal pitting corrosion of carbon steel. This model included the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2), crude oil, temperature, pressure, flow, sulfur, sulfates, bicarbonates, chlorides and microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). The paper discusses field use, merits, precautions and parameterization in using the model.
In this paper, failure analysis methodology will be applied to the principal mechanisms by which FBE coatings fail during long term service; with specific application to case studies involving blistering. The case studies apply standard failure analysis techniques to determine the primary causes and modes of failures.
