In Gazprom dobycha Urengoy LLC, as in other oil-and-gas production enterprises, there are problems of increased equipment wear due to corrosion. A special role there plays CO2 corrosion. Despite the homogeneity of the extracted fluid and even chemical composition of the working medium, the nature and intensity of corrosion damage to pipelines and equipment varies over a wide range, due to different thermobaric parameters of well operation. To determine parameters influencing the rate of corrosion most different methods of statistical analysis were used. The paper provides a methodology for compiling a mathematical model and assessing its reliability. As a result, the equation of carbon dioxide corrosion in relation to the conditions of Achimov deposits of Urengoy oil, gas and condensate field was obtained. The type of the obtained equation was chosen according to the model of the classical de Waard-Milliams carbon dioxide corrosion equation. The model proposed by the authors describes the processes of carbon dioxide corrosion more reliably than the de Waard-Milliams equation does. The disadvantage of the developed model is that it does not reliably describe the speed of corrosion in wells with corrosion rates, significantly exceeding the average values for all wells studied.
