Frequent corrosion perforation of metal pipes severely restricts oil and gas fields' safety production and increases maintenance costs. Therefore, it is imminent to change the characteristics of metal materials fundamentally. In this paper, taking the metal pipe of Northwest Oil and Gas Field in China as an example, for the corrosion environment with high concentrations of H2S, CO2, H2O, Cl−, and O2, the main factors leading to corrosion are analyzed, the corrosion rules and optical materials
more » ... the pipe under different environmental and operating conditions are figured out, and the corrosion resistance of new pipes materials is evaluated. The main conclusions are as follows: (1) In the environment of the CO2–H2O–Cl− strong scouring system, electrochemical corrosion dominates, and the corrosion morphology is mainly groove-like corrosion and ulcer-like corrosion; (2) The H2S content affects the incubation period and development period of pipe corrosion; (3) Through the two optimization directions of 20# steel refining and material alloying, BX245-1Cr pipe material has been developed. At present, the application of this pipe material has relatively better results.
