This article describes the speciation of carbon dioxide in aqueous solutions as well as the main anodic and cathodic reactions during CO2 corrosion of carbon and low alloy steels.
This lecture describes various materials selection and corrosion control strategies for subsea oil and gas production systems. A brief discussion on carbon and low alloy steels as well as corrosion resistance alloys is presented alongside fundamental corrosion concepts.
What is carbon dioxide corrosion?
This article presents the main electrochemical reactions leading to corrosion of carbon steel in the presence of CO2.
