    Abstract: High concentrations of H2S and CO2 make oil producing wells highly corrosive to normal steels alloys, such as carbon steel. The usual solution to this is high chrome steels alloys, such as ferritic stainless steel, i.e. 13Cr. These steels have a good service record in such environments, especially at operating temperatures below 150°C. However the ... Show More
