Scientists develop a way to predict corrosion from crude oil

Post  bejoy on Thu Sep 28, 2017 2:08 am

Using X-ray techniques, scientists at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are developing an analysis tool that can more accurately predict how sulphur compounds in a batch of crude oil might corrode equipment– an important safety issue for the oil industry.

The results of these ongoing experiments at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory will improve industry guidelines. The goal is to characterize the types of sulphur that are most critical to identify in the oil, in order to better anticipate the potential for corrosion rates.

A team of researchers from Chevron Corporation and the University of Saskatchewan are performing a series of studies at SSRL to closely examine forms of sulphur in crude oil.

“By looking at crude oil with a combination of X-ray spectroscopy techniques, we were able to examine and describe the complex chemistry of the sulphur compounds with high specificity,” said Monica Barney, a materials research engineer at Chevron.
