This recommended practice addresses design, maintenance and operating considerations for the mitigation of internal corrosion in sour gas gathering systems constructed with carbon steel materials.

Corrosion is the dominant contributing factor to failures and leaks in pipelines in the province of Alberta. To deal with this issue, the CAPP Pipeline Technical Committee has developed industry recommended practices to improve and maintain the mechanical integrity of upstream pipelines. They are intended to assist upstream oil and gas producers in recognizing the conditions that contribute to pipeline corrosion failures, and identify effective measures that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of corrosion failures.
