SPOTON® U TECHNOLOGY – An Important Tool for Corrosion and Erosion Monitoring in the Oil and Gas Industry

Gray, Louisiana - February 22, 2016 -  1. Corrosion in the oil and gas industry is a very important issue: Corrosion monitoring is an important topic with the oil and gas industry as the cost of corrosion in the industry sector in the USA alone is estimated to be in excess of 27 billion USD (according to NACE International). Corrosion can present itself in many types of structures, can be external and internal, with different shapes and may be caused by several different chemical reactions. Therefore, one must be aware of which issue is likely to be present in a specific case well before corrosion monitoring can be implemented. A previous article by A3 Monitoring (Comparison of Corrosion Monitoring tools in the oil and gas Industry) dealt with explaining how different technologies could be used together to complement each other in order to minimize risk and costs. In this article, we will focus solely on the issue of internal corrosion. Other corrosion issues will be dealt with in future articles. Please see the official White Paper below.   Read More »
