In this paper the results of the activities carried out by Pluspetrol Norte and Tenaris to decrease the well workovers index in the lot 8 of the Peruvian jungle are presented. In this work a materials selection process for production tubing, the applied corrosion management strategies, and the implantation of new associated technologies were considered.

Wells of this lot have historically shown an important tendency to be corrosive and exhibit a high workovers index. In order to reduce the CO2 corrosion failure likelihood in pipes and extend the run life of the wells, it was decided to perform this integral assessment that finally conducted to obtain a significant improvement in terms of expenditures and reliability.
