Corrosion and Water Technology for Petroleum Producers

Corrosion and Water Technology for Petroleum Producers is geared to the needs of field engineers, production foremen, and others involved with reducing production costs. Text and topics are designed for fast, easy reading to provide a coordinated understanding of both scientific principles and established remedies using numerous illustrations, practical guidelines, and specific corrosion control methods, based on firsthand field and laboratory experience. The result is primarily a digest of essential information for a special audience – oil and gas production personnel. The primary goal is to provide a basic level of understanding of corrosion and water problems as they exist in production operations and of the major control procedures that have evolved within the industry.
