Corrosion Inhibitor Testing

Corrosion inhibitor testing and chemical selection are among our specialist capabilities and our extensive experience positions us as your ideal service provider.

Performing corrosion inhibitor testing and optimising chemical selection are critical aspects of maximising the lifespan and safeguarding the integrity of oil and gas infrastructure.

In the oil and gas industry, carbon steel remains the first-choice material for the construction of new pipelines. However, as operating conditions become increasingly extreme, materials are being pushed to their limits. 

Along with ageing assets and equipment operating beyond its projected lifespan, these factors contribute to a heightened risk of materials failure. 

Failure mechanisms that impact carbon steel pipelines are typically localised events such as pitting, weld corrosion or flow-assisted corrosion. As production conditions can contribute to the severity of these processes, operating environments also need to be considered during the design of any testing programme. 

Choosing a partner with specialist facilities and experience will ensure that you receive accurate and reliable guidance on the optimal use of materials and chemicals. 

Tailoring corrosion inhibitor testing and chemical selection advice to meet your requirements, our team, led by internationally recognised experts, is renowned for providing bespoke test methods for unique challenges.

Our specialist knowledge of CO2 corrosion, H2S corrosion and galvanic corrosion is key to successfully mitigating general corrosion, as well as preferential weld, localised and top-of-the-line corrosion.

Utilising the facilities and apparatus in our dedicated laboratories - flow loops, high-pressure dynamic autoclaves and advanced electrochemical monitoring systems - even extreme well conditions can be simulated including brine chemistries, flow regimes, a range of temperatures and acid gas partial pressures.

Moving beyond corrosion inhibitor testing and chemical selection, we can support your business with a full Total Quality Assurance suite of related exploration and production services.
