The Cost of Carbon Steel Corrosion in the Oil and Gas Industry is Astronomical

Posted by Chris Reiter on Sep 26, 2017 9:20:00 AM

Carbon steel accounts for 85% of all U.S. steel production. In all carbon steel applications corrosion is a big factor, and drives up pipeline monitoring and repair costs.  It is estimated that the oil and gas industry spends $7 billion every year just to monitor carbon steel pipelines, and 80% of those costs are related to corrosion inspection and maintenance. 

The bottom line:

 

$5.6 billion is spent annually on corrosion in the oil and gas industry.
