Results of laboratory and field investigations are presented which illustrate corrosion identification and control in several types of EOR projects. Primary emphasis is given to producing wells in CO2 floods, in polymer or micell-polymer floods, and insitu combustion wells. Injection wells in these projects are considered briefly.

Based on corrosion measurements and measurements of sulfide, bicarbonate, and dissolved CO2 in produced fluids, effective corrosion inhibitors can be selected for corrosion control in all of the above conditions.
