Corrosion Control in Oil & Gas

Equipment used in oil and gas operations is exposed to aggressive environments and extreme weather, making corrosion control a challenging objective.

Subsea equipment and pipelines are particularly vulnerable to corrosion. If corrosion is left to worsen on offshore assets, the results could be catastrophic, such as in the case of Loss of Primary Containment (LOPC).

To improve asset lifetime and minimise hazards, oil and gas operations are embracing remote operated vehicles (ROVs), like drones.

Underwater drones, for example, are ideal for subsea exploration and development, removing the need for human divers. They can also be used to monitor underwater pipelines and subsea equipment.

Key fact: The global underwater drone market value is projected to reach $7.39 billion by 2027

Meanwhile, air drones provide aerial images and precise geotechnical data to aid topographic surveying, making 3D topographic mapping more accurate. Equipped with thermal imaging cameras and detection sensors, air drones can also alert operators to assets that are showing signs of corrosion.

Another way oil and gas companies can improve corrosion resistance in equipment is with epoxy paint. This applies an impervious coating to machines, preventing ions from entering the metal surface.
