Gas and water are produced as a by-product
of crude oil production, which leads to the possibility of
corrosion of process materials. The corrosion of topsides
equipment, pipework and subsea pipelines and equipment can
be controlled chemically by the addition of a suitable corrosion
inhibitor that forms a protective film.
Most process pipework and vessels are usually
manufactured from mild steel and various types of corrosion
can occur, including general corrosion, localised corrosion
and galvanic corrosion.
Factors which influence the rate of corrosion
- CO2 concentration
- Water cut
- Water chemistry
Roemex have a dedicated corrosion laboratory,
equipped with state of the art test equipment which allows
corrosion tests to be carried out using a variety of techniques,
including Linear Polarisation Resistance (LPR), DC techniques
as well as Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). This
enables the development of highly robust corrosion inhibitors
that can give general protection from corrosion or inhibition
against specific problems, such as weld corrosion.
Series - The RX-2000 series is our range of corrosion
inhibition chemicals that have been developed to protect from
detrimental corrosion processes.
Inhibitor Questionnaire - If you would like us to investigate
your corrosion problem, please complete the appropriate questionnaire
and return to Roemex Limited.
