Technical Resources to Protect Oil & Gas Assets from Corrosion

Published by , Editor

As the petroleum industry’s infrastructure expands and ages, industry experts and regulatory bodies agree that effective integrity management can reduce dangerous failures – saving lives, reducing downtime, and optimising costs in the oil and gas industry.

The latest insights in corrosion protection for oil and gas assets come together in a series of books and digital downloads from NACE International. Leading experts from the fields of protective coatings and cathodic protection in the petroleum industry have compiled these resources to share their knowledge of corrosion prevention during construction and maintenance of these facilities.

Included among these resources, Crude Unit Corrosion, A Complete How-To Guide is a bestseller available both in print and as a downloadable e-book. An essential resource for plant operators, process engineers, metallurgists, maintenance engineers, and inspectors, this book offers updated information for anyone who deals with crude unit corrosion and fouling issues on a daily basis.

In Pipeline Coatings, experts Y. Frank Cheng and Richard Norsworthy offer a comprehensive history and description of various types of pipeline coatings along with practical information on how to select, test, evaluate, and compare different coating systems. The authors also discuss how coatings work with Cathodic Protection (CP)/CP shielding. This book is recommended for those who design pipeline or CP systems.

This collection of technical resources also includes an essential NACE standard describing the NACE International internal corrosion direct assessment (ICDA) process for multiphase flow pipeline systems. Intended to serve as a guide for applying the MP-ICDA process these types of pipeline systems, this standard outlines a methodology to assess pipeline integrity because of the threat of internal corrosion. This standard applies to both onshore and offshore pipelines containing CO2, H2S, and O2.
