The construction of oil and gas pipelines has a history of more than 100 years. Pipeline transportation is an effective transmission method for water, oil, gas and other fluid media. As such, preventing pipeline corrosion has become a prime challenge across the globe. Therefore, improving anticorrosion technology to reduce economic losses due to corrosion is a long-term issue in the anti-corrosion industry.
With the fast growth of the oil and gas industry and rapid expansion of pipelines across the globe, companies operating in the oil and gas industry are demanding more resilient solutions for pipeline corrosion protection. Crude oil is corrosive in nature and steel pipelines with anti-corrosion properties are the best option for transporting crude from one place to another.
