Special Issue on Pipeline Corrosion and Its Management

Published 28 October, 2020

Corrosion is one of the primary mechanisms causing pipeline failures that can result in serious consequences such as energy loss, environmental impact and even death. Pipeline corrosion is complex, the complexity results from multiple factors and processes occurring simultaneously. While major progress has been made in the area, gaps still exists in terms modelling, prediction, inspection and monitoring, mitigation and controlling of pipeline corrosion. Improving pipeline integrity and safety, sustainability of energy infrastructure and reducing our environmental footprint are all important.

Topics covered: 

  • Internal and external corrosion
  • Stress corrosion cracking and hydrogen-induced cracking
  • CO2 and H2S corrosion
  • Microbial corrosion
  • Erosion corrosion
  • Coatings and cathodic protection
  • Inhibitors and biocides
  • Corrosion modelling
  • Corrosion defect assessment
  • Electrochemical techniques for corrosion measurements
