Corrosion of mild steel pipeline

Central Chemical Consulting has conducted a project involving the determination of corrosion rates for mild steel in contact with crude oil. Central Chemical Consulting was asked to determine whether the storage of crude oil in a mild steel pipe would cause significant corrosion. Laboratory based test work was conducted under a variety of conditions and the corrosion rates determined. Based on the results Central Chemical Consulting was able to make recommendations to the client regarding the likelihood of any damage to the pipe.
