Empowering Piping Integrity with AI-Based Corrosion Prediction Tool

Project Code: 35588

Start date and planned duration: August 2023, 5 months


  • Integration and Prioritization: Incorporate external corrosion data into the CorrosionWISE model to quantify damage severity and prioritize maintenance based on different corrosion levels.
  • Enhanced ML Model: Upgrade the model with industry standards for Fitness for Service assessments, providing a clear pass/fail verdict for corroded pipes.
  • Remaining Life Estimation: Develop algorithms to estimate the remaining life of even non-accessible pipes using external and internal corrosion rates.
  • Validation and Superiority: Validate the model's performance using real-world data and demonstrate its superiority over conventional corrosion assessment methods.
  • User-Friendly Interfaces: Provide user-friendly interfaces and visualizations to aid industry professionals in easy interpretation and decision-making.

Project Outline

The report's structure includes addressing corrosion challenges specifically in upstream facilities, discussing limitations of traditional inspection methods focusing on non-accessible pipes, introducing the CorrosionWISE model, proposing an external corrosion prediction model through a ML algorithm, and emphasizing benefits for the industry.


Industry Sectors

  • Oil and Gas Industry: The screening corrosion tool contributes to the oil and gas industry's potential for achieving operational excellence, enhancing asset integrity management.
  • SMEs and Upstream Production Companies: The main beneficiaries of the project are expected to be SMEs and Upstream production companies.
