Corrision Inhibitors

Inhibitor PS Series

Most metals exist in nature as stable ores of oxides, carbonates or sulfides. Refining them, to make them useful, requires energy. Corrosion is simply nature’s way of reversing an unnatural process back to a lower energy state. Preventing corrosion is vital in every step in the production of oil and gas.

Corrosion-the deterioration of a metal or its properties-attacks every component at every stage in life of every oil and gas field. 

Some causes of corrosion in the oil and gas fields

  • Oxygen plays an important role, however it’s not normally preset in producing formations, but it’s introduced during drilling stage.
  • Water or Carbon dioxide produced or injected for secondary recovery can cause sever corrosion.
  • Acid used to reduce formation damage around the well or remove scale.
  • Also, High temperature, pressure and velocity play important role in corrosion.
  • H2S which precipitates in growth of SRB-Sulfate reducing bacteria- is also another cause for corrosion.

ANCI offers a wide range of corrosion inhibitors to suit all situations and budgets.
