Corrosion costs the oil industry billions of dollars a year, a fact that makes the role of the corrosion engineer an increasingly important one. This article focuses on how corrosion affects every aspect of exploration and production, from offshore rigs to casing, and reviews the role of corrosion agents such as drilling and production fluids. We discuss methods of control and techniques to monitor corrosion, along with an explanation of the chemical causes of corrosion.
