Abstract: The impact of corrosion within the refining industry ends up in the failure of components. This failure leads to closing down the plant to scrub the corroded components. Additionally, corrosion normally causes serious environmental issues, namely spills and releases. A vital resource for all those that are concerned within the corrosion management of oil and gas infrastructure, corrosion management within the oil and gas industry provides engineers and designers with the tools and strategies to plan and implement comprehensive corrosion-management programs for oil and gas infrastructures. Control of corrosion is important for continuous production and evading the well control losses. Materials to be used in down hole have to meet certain characteristics to avoid corrosion and provide additional mechanical strenght. It is potential to determine a logical series of steps for material choice, incorporating analysis of the surroundings, corrosion rate calculations, and final material choice based on established limits. Several developments have taken place in refinement the calculation of CO2 corrosion rates. Moreover, the definition of bitter examination has been reviewed and a way wider evaluation of the relevance of varied established and new materials for various service conditions has been created.
