Why We Care

In the Oil and Gas industry, corrosion has been estimated to cost as much as $3-7 Billion USD annually, according to Genome Canada. 


The study, International Measures of Prevention and Economics of Corrosion Technology (IMPACT), estimates a price tag of $6.3 Billion CAD annually for corrosion-related deterioration and failures of national assets. The study also identified savings between 15-35% of that amount through the implementation of existing corrosion control practices.
