The purpose of this paper is to develop an equation for the synergistic corrosion of SRB and CO2 based on the D-W model.
The bacterial types in the a and ß pipelines were studied by the most probable number method, and the corrosion morphology of L360 in pipeline water samples was studied by surface analysis. The corrosion rate of L360 was studied using the weight loss method. The gray correlation method was used to calculate the degree of correlation between the influencing factors of corrosion under the synergistic effect of CO2 and SRB. The curve obtained from PIPESIM software and experiments data was then fitted using multiple non-linear regression method by MATLAB software.
The equation was used to predict the corrosion of the ß pipeline for verification, and it was found that seven out of ten excavation sites were within a 20% error range.
Using the gray correlation method, an equation that considers synergistic corrosion of SRB and CO2 has been developed based on the D-W model. The equation could be used to predict the corrosion rate of shale gas gathering pipelines through SRB and CO2 synergistic corrosion.
