Abstract

Assuring the reliability of crude unit pipelines in the downstream oil and gas industry is highly essential since unexpected failures of these pipelines can result in a number of negative impacts to the business, including safety, environmental, and economic impacts. The objective of this work is to understand the degradation behavior of the piping system so we can know in advance when the degraded pipeline will reach the minimum thickness threshold.
