Corrosion Modeling

Subsea Integrity Management: Materials Selection & Monitoring

Development of an integrity management program is initiated during design phase, which includes selecting the appropriate materials, establishing requirements for corrosion, erosion, flow assurance and process along with associated maintenance, monitoring and surveillance requirements. In this GATEKEEPER, the philosophy around the materials selection and corrosion monitoring is discussed as the primary design barrier to corrosion and cracking in critical parts of a subsea system.

Corrosion Modeling: Comparison, Interpretation & Limitation

Corrosion modeling is a vital tool in the pre-Front End Engineering Design (pre-FEED), FEED, and operational stages of the life of pipeline and equipment systems. Corrosion and materials engineers often rely on corrosion prediction models to select appropriate materials for construction, incorporate sufficient corrosion allowance into a design, and evaluate chemical corrosion inhibitor requirements or recommend other corrosion mitigation methods.

Corrosion Modeling - Influencing Factors

Corrosion modeling is a vital tool in the pre-Front End Engineering Design (FEED), FEED, and operational stages of the life of pipeline and flowline systems. Corrosion and materials engineers often rely on corrosion prediction models to select appropriate materials for construction, incorporate sufficient corrosion allowance into a design, and establish the need for chemical corrosion inhibitors or other corrosion mitigation methods.
