Underground pipelines transporting liquid petroleum products and natural gas are critical components of civil infrastructure, making corrosion prevention an essential part of asset-protection strategy. Underground Pipeline Corrosion provides a basic understanding of the problems associated with corrosion detection and mitigation, and of the state of the art in corrosion prevention. The topics covered in part one include: basic principles for corrosion in underground pipelines, AC-induced corrosion of underground pipelines, significance of corrosion in onshore oil and gas pipelines, numerical simulations for cathodic protection of pipelines, and use of corrosion inhibitors in managing corrosion in underground pipelines. The methods described in part two for detecting corrosion in underground pipelines include: magnetic flux leakage, close interval potential surveys (CIS/CIPS), Pearson surveys, in-line inspection, and use of both electrochemical and optical probes. While the emphasis is on pipelines transporting fossil fuels, the concepts apply as well to metallic pipes for delivery of water and other liquids. Underground Pipeline Corrosion is a comprehensive resource for corrosion, materials, chemical, petroleum, and civil engineers constructing or managing both onshore and offshore pipeline assets; professionals in steel and coating companies; and academic researchers and professors with an interest in corrosion and pipeline engineering. Reviews the causes and considers the detection and prevention of corrosion to underground pipes Addresses a lack of current, readily available information on the subject Case studies demonstrate how corrosion is managed in the underground pipeline industry

Modeling of pipeline corrosion control by cathodic protection, has been made. It can augment the design process and present a number of experimentally determined factors that should be applied to present modeling code development. To improve the computational approach to cathodic protection system design for bare and coated pipe, different factors e.g. environment resistivity, different coating materials, current density, location of anode and attenuation potential along the pipe must be taken into account. It is found that polyethylene tape coating is more proper than other coatings which act to electrically isolate the pipeline from its surroundings, thus cutting off the return electron path and preventing the formation of a corrosion cell. Coatings protect more than 99% of the pipe surface. Increasing the environment resistivity decreases corrosion rate and current density. Moreover, location of anode can be controlled by potential and current density, which has a major effect on corrosion rate of partial cathodic protection. Environment resistivity affects limiting current density which is found to be important.
