Selection and qualification of carbon and low-alloy steels, corrosion-resistant alloys, and other alloys for service in equipment in oil and natural gas production and NG treatment plants in H2S-containing
The Wafra Joint Operation (WJO) Oilfield is located in the central-west part of the Kuwait-Saudi Arabia Neutral Zone. The Wafra oilfield reserves were first discovered and wells drilled in 1954. This field produces two types of crude oil, Ratawi (light oil) and Eocene (heavy oil), with average water cut of 8085%. During operation, the production wells produce the oil emulsion through mostly coated flowlines to sub-centres (SC) where the sour oil, water and gas are separated. The facility has two gathering fields; Eocene and Ratawi. Eocene has 2 phase separation, whilst Ratawi has 3 phase separation. The sour gas is either flared or flows to the Main Power Generation Plant, whilst the oil is processed to the Main Gathering Center (MGC). The produced waters (PW) are routed to the Pressure Maintenance Plant (PMP).
This paper gives an update on the latest developments of the new generation of waterborne Polyurethane Topcoats (PU topcoats) for flooring which were presented during the annual SSPC meeting October 2003. Topcoats are commonly used in the construction industry over functional floor coatings or as sealers for concrete.
Carbon steel is the main construction material in HYDROFLUORIC ACID (HF) alkylation units. Carbon Steel has good corrosion resistance to anhydrous HF (AHF) below 160 degrees fahrenheit (71 C). The corrosion resistance is due to the formation of an inorganic iron fluoride scale on the carbon steel surface that protects the steel from futher corrosion. The presence of an adherent and continuous scale is essential in keeping the corrosion rate at a minimum.
The corrosion profession, and the certified professionals who work in the industry, are committed to protecting people, assets and the environment from the effects of corrosion. Those tasked with delivering the technical expertise to society must conduct their work with the knowledge and understanding of the ethical principles expected and required of those professionals.
The NACE International Code of Ethics is discussed in conjunction with case studies and features real-life ethical violations of the NACE International Institute attestations. Frameworks for making ethical decisions are reviewed in this course along with the factors in the corrosion industry that can lead to unethical behavior.
The course is an online, self-paced course which should take no longer than 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is the largest volume commodity chemical in use today.It plays some part in the production ofnearly all manufactured goods. One large use of concentrated sulfuric acid is used as a catalyst for refinery alkylationunits.Intheseunits,C3-C5olefinssuchaspropyleneorbutylenearereactedwithisobutanetoformgasoline-blendingcomponents such as isoheptane and isooctane.These gasoline-blending components are used to boost octane forautomobileandaviationfuels.
Most refineries have an alkylation unit that uses either hydrofluoric acid (HF) or sulfuric acid as the alkylation catalyst.Thisstandarddealswithspentsulfuricacidassociatedwiththesulfuricacidalkylationprocessonly.
This NACE Standard Practice aims to provide guidance for selection and application of Corrosion Inhibitors (CI) for upstream oil and gas processes conditions exposed to corrosive environments.
The application of effective Corrosion Inhibitors (CI) in Oil and Gas production is essential to enable long term use of carbon steel in corrosive production environments. These chemical CI products can be applied continuously, or on a Batch (BI) basis. The effectiveness of CIs(products) that are applied has to be assured for the range of conditions associated with the application and for the lifetime of the facility. The assurance is predominantly achieved through laboratory testing. However, field evaluation of CIs can be a significant part of the assurance process.
NEW EDITION!! For nearly 50 years Control of Pipeline Corrosion, written by A.W. Peabody, has been the most trusted resource in the field of pipeline corrosion. Now completely revised and updated, the third edition of this classic reference continues the tradition of excellence by providing the most thorough and authoritative coverage of the prevention and control of pipeline corrosion, and now includes a chapter on AC interference.
Peabody's Control of Pipeline Corrosion, Third Edition, edited by Ronald Bianchetti, blends traditional corrosion engineering practices with modern technologies to make this the single source for corrosion control. Chapters have updated information and graphics to expand on the user-friendly nature of the original book.

The European regulation known as REACH has completely revamped the way U.S. companies export into the European market. On June 1, 2007 the REACH legislation was accepted into law and is applicable to 27 EU members and 3 non-EU members. In order for the U.S. to be able to sell protective coatings to these countries the companies must comply with the REACH legislation.
This book presents new developments that have affected the commercial use of chemicals and devices to clean industrial equipment. This second edition will emphasize the mechanisms of important cleaning processes and solvents and will give an overview of the science and technology of the formation and removal of fouling deposits in the industrial equipment environment. It is directed to a general technically trained audience, with emphasis placed on the basic chemical and mechanical principles of industrial cleaning (IC).
