Treating carbon dioxide corrosion in Western Siberian oilfield systems. A.N. Markin. Mater. Perform., October 1994, 33(10), 52--55.

Investigations are described into the corrosion mechanism of CO2-corrosion of carbon steel. Under conditions of constant outside parameters---temperature, partial pressure of CO2, water-phase chemical composition, and rate of medium stirring---differing phase relationships in the scale can produce widely varying corrosion rates. The application is shown of the produced water saturation to predict iron carbonate scale deposition. Data are also presented on the inhibition of CO2-corrosion of carbon steel under scaling conditions. 7 refs.
