Mitigating Corrosion Risk in Pipelines and Ships during Carbon Transportation
Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) are extremely important to reduce CO2 emissions to limit the global temperature rise. During carbon transportation, process impurities like NO2, SO2, H2S, etc can form highly corrosive acids that can lead to catastrophic failure of carbon steel pipelines or tanks. Understanding the electrolyte chemistry reactions of the impurities will enable accurate predictions of conditions under which they will react as well as when they can be innocuous. The key to effective simulation is the simultaneous prediction of both reaction equilibria and phase equilibria in dense phases dominated by CO2 to define safe operating windows for CO2 transport systems. OLI has partnered with the Norwegian Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) to develop accurate thermodynamic models in the OLI software platform to predict corrosive components based on the experimental work done by IFE. These parameters can be used to predict safe operating windows for carbon transportation pipelines and shipping containers.
