As an oil & gas reservoir ages, the composition of the production often changes. For gas wells, this change is often from dry gas to a wetter gas. The wet components can be quite acidic due to CO2 and organic acids contained in this liquid phase. In an Oilfield Technology article, Mitigating corrosion in ageing […]
