  • Reviews the state of the art in corrosion management, including strategies for corrosion identification, prevention, and mitigation
  • Reveals the limitations and misunderstandings about concepts currently used in corrosion management, providing readers with valuable insight for finding solutions and better interpreting field findings
  • Covers a wide breadth of corrosion science and engineering topics related to the oil and gas industries, including microbial corrosion, economical aspects of corrosion, the role of design, corrosion hazards, corrosion protection of underground crude pipelines, material selection, and metallurgy in oil and gas
  • Draws on the expertise of contributors from major oil- and gas-producing and -exporting countries
  • Includes more than 380 illustrations, plus an eight-page color insert


The advancement of methods and technologies in the oil and gas industries calls for new insight into the corrosion problems these industries face daily. With the application of more precise instruments and laboratory techniques as well as the development of new scientific paradigms, corrosion professionals are also witnessing a new era in the way data are gathered and interpreted. Corrosion and Materials in the Oil and Gas Industries draws on state-of-the-art corrosion and materials technology as well as integrity management to offer guidance on dealing with aging and life extension in the oil and gas industries.

Get Expert Insights on Corrosion Identification, Prevention, and Mitigation

The book features contributions by engineers, scientists, and business managers from around the world, including major oil- and gas-producing and -exporting countries. Organized into four parts, the book first provides introductory and background information. The second part explains the properties of construction materials and the underlying mechanisms of degradation, including a chapter on microbiologically influenced corrosion. The third part of the book delves into inspection and maintenance issues, examining material selection, corrosion prevention strategies, and the role of design. It also supplies models to help you estimate corrosion damage and select mitigation and monitoring techniques. The fourth part tackles corrosion hazards, safety and risk, and reliability. It also links corrosion mitigation and the management of asset integrity, highlighting the need for companies to maintain their infrastructure to remain competitive.

Interpret Field Findings More Confidently and Discover Solutions to Your Corrosion Problems

Throughout, this richly illustrated book combines theory with practical strategies and examples from industry. As infrastructure ages and is pushed beyond its original design life to meet increasing energy demands, it is essential that those responsible for managing the infrastructure have a thorough understanding of material degradation and corrosion. This book is an invaluable reference for anyone involved in corrosion management and materials selection, particularly in the oil and gas industries, whether upstream, midstream, or downstream.

Editorial Reviews

"... covers a wide spectrum of corrosion topics with rich illustrations, an easy-to-understand writing style, and the presentation of review articles, providing state-of-the-art corrosion-mitigation techniques useful for practicing engineers, technologists, and field technicians. It also provides a basic understanding of corrosion mechanisms, which will be equally beneficial to people who are not directly involved in the corrosion field to assist them in their related tasks. ... this book is equally suitable for undergraduate curriculums as well as for obtaining professional certification in the field of corrosion and material selection and design."
—From the Foreword by Dr. Fakhruddin Habiby, MS, Ph.D., FICorr, NACE Certified Materials Selection and Design Specialist and Corrosion Specialist, Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada

"It provides fundamental knowledge and background to engineers who are engaged in the operation of the oil and gas industries. In addition, by giving some practical examples, it enhances their understanding of the root cause of corrosion problems, which they may encounter in day-to-day operations."
—Dr. Sadegh Parvizi, FIMMM, Oxford, UK
