Research on Corrosion of Well-Bore Tube and Anticorrosive Measure of Tazhong-1 Gas Field
Natural gas of Tazhong-1 gas field contains 7.7% carbon dioxide and 2.31% hydrogen sulfide, and produced water salinity is up to 140000mg/L,the well-bore tube has seriously potential corrosion destructive with natural gas being exploited. Based on the corrosion type partition of down-hole tube for eighteen production wells of Tazhong-1 gas field, P110,P110S and P110SS corrosion behavior were investigated under the conditions of simulated formation water containing carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide/carbon dioxide, and corrosion inhibitors were chosen to meet need of anticorrosion of Tazhong-1 gas field. The results show that fifteen wells in eighteen production wells belong to hydrogen sulfide corrosion of both hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide influence. Other wells are singular carbon dioxide corrosion. The most severe corrosion of three types of down-hole tubes all occurs at 90°C in both corrosion media, and their corrosion resistance order is respectively P110>P110S>P110SS and P110S>P110SS>P110 under the conditions of simulated formation water containing carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. The selected anti-temperature corrosion inhibitors (YU-1、YU-4) can control the corrosion rate of three types of down-hole tubular goods within 0.076mm/a in simulated formation water media with carbon dioxide (PCO2=0.08～4.64MPa) or hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide (PH2S/Pco2=1.3/4.64Mpa) while added amount of the inhibitor is 120～300mg/L or 200mg/L. All of these provide technical support for safe and fast development of Tazhong-1 gas field.
