Corrosion – the deterioration of a metal or its properties – attacks every component at every stage in the life of every oil and gas field”, states an article titled Corrosion in the Oil Industry in Schlumberger. Studies have proved that oxygen, carbon dioxide, water, hydrogen sulphide lead to corrosion of pressure vessel, RIG components , Heat Exchanger, well casings, drilling equipment, pipelines and all other equipment and instruments used in the oil and gas industry.

"Corrosion Loss in Oil & Gas industry : The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil & gas industry is estimated to be S 1.4 billion."

Critical equipment in crude oil and refinery processing  need protection against electro-chemical corrosion; especially due to harsh environment, corrosive gases and water intrusions.

UPSTREAM Application (Exploration & Production)

Corrosion protection is mainly required for:

  • Operational and capital spares.
  • Operational and idle assets (critical equipments and spares, like pipelines, vessels, storage tanks, etc.)
  • Operations and maintenance for onshore and offshore assets.

MIDSTREAM Application (Transportation & Storage)

  • Preservation of Capital equipment and spares, critical pipes and tubes and storage vessels.
  • Idle Transportation vehicles and vessels.
  • Simplified Antirust VCI powder fogging methods for vessels and void spaces of encased pipes.
  • Tank bottom and internal preservation technology

DOWNSTREAM Application (Refining & Petrochemicals)

  • Offer Tangible benefits by enhancing corrosion protection to equipments and critical pipelines in oil refining and gas processing facilities
  • Safepack VCI’s usage Results in reducing down time to a great extent and increases the process efficiency/effectiveness extending the equipment life.
  • Safepack VCI’s function effectively even in presence of active corrosives like moisture and sulphur.

  • Safepack High Performing Antirust VCI offers tailor made, need based, preservation solutions for every application in Oil & Gas Industry.
