This handbook provides general information to personnel working across the hydrocarbon industry to help minimise the risks associated with external corrosion. Unless controlled effectively, external corrosion can cause failures of structures, process equipment, mechanical, and electrical equipment on offshore and onshore installations.

This handbook provides general knowledge on the following subjects:

  • the basics of external corrosion;
  • items in oil and gas industry which are susceptible to external corrosion;
  • typical appearances of the external corrosion threats, and
  • mitigation of the external corrosion threats.

The external corrosion awareness handbook refers to the EI’s Guidance for corrosion management in oil and gas production and processing, which readers are recommended to read for more detailed information on the technical content within this handbook.
