The systematic selection approach for corrosion monitoring systems and locations for our oil and gas fields is described. A major factor in the selection process is the high level of H2S in some of our fields. This limits the number of monitoring systems that can successfully be used and also adds to the safety concerns. New probes for corrosion monitoring have been tested by us and the results of the trials are discussed here.
