PRESENTATION: Internal Corrosion Discussion Before the National Academy of Sciences (DNV)

Conclusions on internal pipeline corrosion as presented by Oliver Moghissi, PhD, vice president at Det Norske Veritas (DNV):

  • Internal corrosion in DilBit pipelines is like other crude oil pipelines
    -Cannot be ignored
    -Can be managed
  • Existing internal corrosion consensus standards and industry practice are applicable to DilBit pipelines
  • DilBit is unique in terms of public attention (i.e., consequence), which justifies additional risk mitigation
  • Risk is likely mitigated more efficiently by addressing things other than (i.e., in addition to) internal corrosion
