Corrosion of general oil-field grade steel in CO2 environment - An update in the light of current understanding
MetadataShow full item record
In this review, we discussed the current mechanistic understanding and effects of key parameters on corrosion of carbon and low alloy steel (CLAS) in CO2 environments. In particular, we emphasized on the current understanding related to the mechanism of early stage nucleation of siderite that has evolved from the outcomes of in-situ synchrotron-based X-ray studies under various modes. We also highlighted the effect of the most important environmental and metallurgical factors affecting the corrosion behavior of CLAS. Finally, we addressed the aspects of material chemistry and micro-alloying necessary for achieving the most effective and economic materials system for mitigating corrosion in CO2 environment.
