Oxygen Scavengers

Oxygen does not occur naturally in formation waters and is typically introduced from the surface by fracturing or water flooding processes.

  • Oxygen is the most corrosive gas encountered in oil and gas systems.
  • Oxygen in even trace concentrations can be extremely damaging.
  • Oxygen accelerates effects of other corrosive agents such as dissolved carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide gasses.

The most effective approach in controlling oxygen corrosion is to eliminate the source of contamination.
Chemical additives may be added to control small amounts of oxygen in producing, injection, and pipeline systems, but if oxygen content is high, chemical treatments become economically unfeasible
