Corrosion management (CM) is a rather new concept and expertise. Its origins go back to early 2000's. The CM concept emerged from the UK's offshore oil and gas industry; from where the author also started his professional career.
Due to this newness and a vast multitude of application benefits, there has been a constant growth in demands for the provision of CM awareness, training, expertise and consultancy year after year.
The author has so far compiled a total of four CM books and this one is the last in the series. It is also the most comprehensive among the four books, with a greater emphasis and focus on CM field implementation.
Therefore, if one intends to implement CM across their asset(s), then this book could provide them with the required advice, instructions and guidelines on proper CM field implementation for both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon industries.
The book covers subjects from how to define the scope of work to report writing and communicating the latest integrity findings.
It is written in a simple and jargon-free language and intended for various disciplines including: corrosion and integrity engineers, inspection engineers, pipeline engineers, process engineers, maintenance engineers and asset integrity managers
2018 NACE E-Book.
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 attached, 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
This fourth volume, "Alternative Methods of Scale Control," reviews methods for controlling inorganic scale that provide alternatives to chemical SI methods or those that may be used with SIs to enhance management for an entire connected system. The first sections (1 and 2) describe non-chemical methods such as anti-scaling surfaces and electronic methods for reducing scale deposition.
In alignment with the corporate road map, the Southern Area Gas Producing Facilities (SAGPF) of Saudi Aramco has led an initiative of replacing a traditional carbon steel flow-line with reinforced thermoplastic pipe (RTP) on a trial basis. The candidate flow-line was selected after identifying several metal loss indications via an in-line-Inspection tool. The objective of this experimental pilot was to examine the performance of nonmetallic pipeline for a conventional gas well. It is noteworthy that this trial-test is considered to be the first of its kind in Saudi Aramco —the use of RTP in a permanent flow-line installation at a conventional gas well. This technical paper will primarily discuss several important elements of the project. Firstly, it will highlight an overview on the overall corrosion damage mechanism within the conventional gas wells’ piping network and existing controlling measures. Secondly, it will highlight the advantages of this technology deployment in the oil and gas industry. Additionally, it will discuss the implementation of RTP flow-line installation, in which it will present the construction phase, commissioning, operational performance, and the successful criteria of this trial test.
