Hot off the presses: 4 new resources for pipeline corrosion protection

Published by , Editor
World Pipelines,

According to The US Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), corrosion causes about a quarter of all incidents involving significant onshore hazardous liquid pipelines, and 20% of incidents involving gas transmission pipelines.

Pipeline leaks and ruptures resulting from internal corrosion increase risks associated with health, safety, the environment, and deliverability, and can result in regulatory actions and litigation against pipeline operators.

To address this concern, NACE International has developed a collection of essential resources for oil industry professionals responsible for the protection of pipeline assets. These books and industry standards convey decades of industry knowledge and know-how, providing practical tools to manage, prevent, and mitigate corrosion in the oil and gas industry.

Each book is available in paperback or as an e-book at NACE International’s online book store; the standards are available as downloadable resources.

Featuring case studies, charts and graphs, and best practices for petroleum industry asset integrity managers seeking to improve their knowledge of corrosion, these books cover topics ranging from protective coatings to cathodic protection.

“I have witnessed numerous times how proper corrosion management applications have resulted in cost optimizations… and improved corrosion awareness and competencies,” says Ali Morshed, author of An Introduction to Asset Corrosion Management in the Oil and Gas Industry.

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

Add these books to your technical library to learn how to protect your pipelines from corrosion:

CorrCompilation: Mechanism of CO2 Corrosion, Volume 1 & 2
Edited By Sudhakar Mahajanam

Dive deeper into carbon dioxide corrosion mechanism with this compilation, which covers the thermodynamics and kinetics of the corrosion process, iron carbonate scale formation, and what role the metallurgical and microstructural aspects of steel play. Part 2 of this compilation addresses how the metallurgical and microstructural aspects of the steel play a role in this corrosion mechanism.

Pipeline Coatings
By Y. Frank Cheng and Richard Norsworthy

These authors provide a history and description of various types of pipeline coatings; offer practical information on how to select, test, evaluate, and compare different coating systems; and discuss how coatings work with Cathodic Protection (CP)/CP shielding. This new title would be of particular interest to those who design pipeline or CP systems.

An Introduction to Asset Corrosion Management in the Oil and Gas Industry, 2nd Edition
By Ali Morshed

The discipline of corrosion management (CM) and its applications are outlined in a clear, concise definition with real-life, applicable case studies so you can apply best practices in asset management in the field. Learn the CM concept and process, its products, shortcomings, and application benefits.

CorrCompilation: CO2 and H2S Metal Loss Corrosion - 10 Year Review
By Yves Gunaltun

Add 20+ years of knowledge to your shelf (and to your general know-how) on the mechanism prediction, monitoring, and control of CO2 and H2S metal loss corrosion.
