In order to ensure smooth and uninterrupted flow of oil and gas to the end users, it is imperative for the field operators, pipeline engineers, and designers to be corrosion conscious as the lines and their component fittings would undergo material degradations due to corrosion. This paper gives a comprehensive review of corrosion problems during oil and gas production and its mitigation. The chemistry of corrosion mechanism had been examined with the various types of corrosion and associated corroding agents in the oil and gas industry. Factors affecting each of the various forms of corrosion were also presented.

Historically speaking, corrosion evaluation methods in the industrial wastewater industry typically involved the analysis of sacrificial samples coupons placed in the pipeline. These samples were precisely weighed prior to their exposure to the process media then analyzed for metal loss and other imperfections. These samples formed the basis for determining the general and localized corrosion rate for the entire process. More coupons located at more locations resulted in larger amounts of data for evaluation, and thus a more accurate corrosion picture for the entire facility. Over the years, corrosion evaluation tools have been developed to help the corrosion engineer do his or her job more efficiently.
