Predictive modelling of internal pitting corrosion of aged non-piggable pipelines
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015 The Electrochemical Society. A multivariate regression analysis and time-dependent maximum pit depth growth model was developed using maximum pit depths and pipeline operational parameters, which includes temperature, CO<inf>2</inf> partial pressure, flow rate, pH, sulfate ion, chloride ion and water cut. This statistical analysis, which used ten years Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) data from non-piggable onshore pipelines, accounted for different categories of maximum pitting rates - low, moderate, high and severe. The model was validated using field data from twelve operating pipelines and the results agreed well with the field data.
