Present methods of corrosion mitigation, although successful and advantageous over past methods, appear to be highly overdesigned and thus prove to be expensive.

In order to reduce the cost of corrosion control, the authors have proposed a series of calculation steps that limit the corrosion control to specific intervals of tubing rather than the whole string of tubing. Further cost saving measures can be realized by completing the corrosive wells with a system that monitors corrosion and regulates the mass flow rate of inhibitor into the tubing automatically.
