This documents addresses design, maintenance, and operating considerations for the mitigation of internal corrosion in oilfield water handling systems.

Corrosion is a dominant contributing factor to failures and leaks in pipelines. 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 incidents, and identify effective measures that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of corrosion incidents.
