Technical and Economic Feasibility of Preventing SCC through Control of Oxygen

The objectives of this research project are to: (1) evaluate the performance and efficacy of oxygen scavengers under flowing conditions; (2) develop a model to calculate the oxygen consumption in the pipeline under flowing conditions; this model will also enable the evaluation of the pipeline length affected by oxygen; (3) develop a system that can provide rapid and direct oxygen concentration measurement; and (4) perform an engineering and economical feasibility evaluation of preventing stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) by the control of oxygen and provide recommendations
