Abstract: It is essential for the designers, engineers and field operators, who designs and fabricates to be duly mindful of corrosion so as to enjoy undisturbed production, since most field materials are subjected to corrosion. This will prolong the commercial existence of production facilities. This paper provides an all-round review of challenges of corrosion while producing and proffers antidotes. The mechanism of corrosion was studied with the different kinds of corrosion that is experience in the Petroleum industry.
