Abstract: The dependence of the rate of corrosion-related oilfield pipeline leaks on operation time is analyzed. It is shown theoretically that the oilfield pipeline leak rate first increases and then decreases after reaching a maximum. The validity of this conclusion is demonstrated using data on the leak rate at various oilfield pipeline types

Keywords: oilfield pipelines, leak rate, corrosion inhibition
