RP3.4-10: Effects of Common Impurities Found in High Density CO2 Pipelines

Executive Summary

Recent laboratory tests have shown that the corrosivity of high-density CO2 increases significantly when certain commonly found impurities are present. The relationship does not appear to be predictable with corrosion rates often being much faster than expected.   

This literature review project will provide a better understanding of what is already known regarding this phenomenon, allowing planning of the most valuable future research to undertake that will enable industry to better manage this risk.
