Pipeline Corrosion Failure Analysis in the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry


Most upstream pipeline failures in the western Canadian petroleum industry are caused by internal corrosion. Regulatory requirements for interpretation of failures caused by internal corrosion must consider important factors such as operating parameters, flow regime, produced fluids and gas composition, microbiological issues and the reliability of mitigation programs. Modeling of the environment, understanding potential corrosion mechanism’s and operating practices are critical to identifying the root cause of pipeline failures. Knowledge of the failure mechanism is essential in development of a more effective mitigation and monitoring program. This presentation outlines an approach to pipeline failure analysis with illustration of corrosion mechanisms and the importance of critical operating parameters.
