Abstract
A group of corrosion experts from different oil companies has prepared guidelines for use of CO2 corrosion prediction tools. The guidelines are intended for use in design and engineering practice applied by companies operating oil and gas production facilities. This document attempts to set minimum guidelines that should be common to most companies. The document is sufficiently flexible to allow individual companies to adapt the information set forth in this document to their own environment and requirements. A methodology for defining the likelihood of corrosion and the impact on CO2 prediction is developed. The CO2 prediction is based on existing tools. An overview of available CO2 corrosion prediction models evaluated by the participants is given. It is the responsibility of the operator to select which model to use.
