Investigating Effect of Corrosion Inhibition for Water-Based Mud under High Pressure and Temperature Grant uri icon


  • Corrosion is defined as the damage created by single or multiple reaction in the metal whether by chemical or electrochemical within its system. In the drilling oil and gas sector, approximately 50% of their expenses are used to pre-define and maintain the integrity of their supplied machine, equipment, and drilling accessories that are mostly made out of metals. Such corrosion, aside from being costly, a stern set-back is the effect on the environment and to its operator. In the technological progress of drilling High Pressure and High Temperature (HPHT), the significant extent of hydrocarbon resources lies with the huge depths under the stream line is directly proportional to the increasing range of temperature and pressure that leads to corrosion. Due to the continued growth in hydrocarbon demand, operators in the oil and gas industry are always looking to drill deeper wells in order to access previously unattainable hydrocarbons. High-Pressure High-Temperature (HPHT) wells are now broadly present in places like the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, and the Middle East. HPHT wells are usually defined as wells where temperatures exceed 300 F and pressures are in excess of 10,000 psi (Shadravan 2012)..........
