When conducting a visual inspection in conjunction with an ECDA dig, operators should look for the telltale tubercle--a hard deposit of soil and metallic corrosion
product at the coating defect.

Microorganisms are ubiquitous in oil and gas environment and may influence both the initiation and propagation of all known types of metallic corrosion
. As a consequence, MIC poses a serious risk for the integrity, performance and reliability of nearly all metals used in oil and gas operations such as iron, steel, aluminum, titanium and their alloys.

Adsorption plays an important role in the inhibition of metallic corrosion
by organic inhibitors.
and ion migration are both electrochemical phenomena that occur in the presence of moisture and ionic contamination found in dust.

The influence of different artificial saliva on metallic corrosion
was investigated by measurements of open circuit potential, polarisation curves, chosen owing to its high rate of corrosion.
