Oil & Gas Industry Corrosion Solutions

The Oil & Gas Industry has presented difficult challenges to researchers in fighting the effects of corrosion — in economic loss and environmental safety.

The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil and gas production industry is estimated to be $1.372 billion, more specifically $589 million in surface pipeline and facility costs, $463 million annually in downhole tubing expenses, and another $320 million in capital expenditures related to corrosion.

MPG offers a turn-key solution that includes a full line of corrosion prevention technologically advanced products and consulting, and field implementation services.

These products are especially effective in low areas in the system where water collects causing extreme corrosive attack.
