Abstract

"The corrosion of metals in the petroleum industry has become an important engineering problem. The rapid increase during recent years in costs of steel has caused the industry to intensify its efforts to minimize corrosion losses in pipe lines and well casings. An industry-wide research program has resulted in the development of improved methods of controlling corrosion of such equipment.

The purpose of this paper is to assemble and correlate the information concerning the different causes, the detection, and the mitigation of corrosion of metals used in the oil fields of the world. The causes that are presented in this paper are the known ones as of today. The subject has been thoroughly investigated and it may be assumed that they are the only known factors.

The methods of detection of corrosion are varied. Some are quite new, while others have been in use since corrosion was first recognized. Each corrosion problem is a problem in itself. Methods of mitigation that prove satisfactory in one field, may fail in another"--Introduction, page 1.
