The authors estimate that the cost of corrosion and scaling in the US is about 400 billion dollars per year. Scale, or deposits, that can build up in the wellbore tubulars and other downhole components not only cause considerable damage to the life of the well, but an unnecessary amount of downtime in well completion and production. Infrastructure provides the support for the well's system, and with oil and gas consumption on the rise and transportation required to feed that demand, all petroleum and environmental engineers must have accurate corrosion and scaling information. This book will teach the engineer how to: Enhance the reliability and integrity of corrosion and scale control technologies, Manage scale deposits, prevent fatigue and ensure equipment integrity, Learn realistic rules-of-thumb from present-day oilfield case histories, Understand basic terminology from an extensive glossary. Perfect for the student as well as the practicing engineer, The Fundamentals of Corrosion and Scaling for Petroleum and Environmental Engineers will provide the quick reference that engineers need to gather all the necessary information on corrosion and scaling and protect equipment from future problems.
