Backed by an 85+ year history of operating within the Asia Pacific region, Wood is proud of its longstanding partnerships, underpinned by our proven ability to optimise asset performance, drive capital efficiency and deliver for our customers.
Wood has been present in the Caspian region for over 20 years. We combine our strong knowledge of the area, global expertise across the entire asset life cycle and experience required to operate successfully in the harsh and complex environment of the world’s largest land-locked body of water.
The Middle East is a key growth area for Wood. We have maintained a presence in the region for over 7 decades; helping design, build, operate, maintain, and modify some of the world’s largest and complex facilities.
Wood is strategically located throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in a variety of sectors including oil and gas, refining, chemicals, water, mining, energy, industrial plants and facilities and communications.
Used by operators and engineering contractors worldwide, ECE™ delivers realistic corrosion assessments calibrated to real field data.
Corrosion caused by the process fluids is one of the main challenges in the design and operation of facilities for oil and gas production, pipelines, process facilities and other systems. ECE® is a tool that assists corrosion engineers through the quantitative estimation of corrosion rates and selection of corrosion-resistant materials. At the heart of ECE is a model for corrosion analysis, firmly based on laboratory data and on-field calibration studies with pipelines, piping and downhole tubing.
ECE is relied on by operators, engineering contractors and suppliers world-wide to support critical decision making, for example:
New project feasibility and concept studies
Front–end and detailed design engineering
Selection of suitable and cost-effective materials
Analysing operational corrosion problems
Life-prediction and life-extension
ECE is applicable where corrosion is primarily due to acid gases (carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide), for example front-end oil and gas production, pipelines, downstream processing, as well as in geothermal energy and some situations in power generation, refining and other industries.
Corrosion rate estimation for steel downhole tubing, flowlines pipelines, and process piping
Selection of corrosion resistant alloys considering corrosion, pitting and stress-corrosion cracking
Multiple point calculation along well tubing string or along a pipeline/flowline
Multi-stream bulk calculation function with spreadsheet import and export capability
Treatment of sweet (CO2 ) and sour (CO2 + H2S) service conditions
Corrosion evaluation incorporates critical factors such as oil API gravity, water-cut, flow rates, tubing deviation angles, carbonate and sulphide scaling, flow regime, top of line corrosion
Lifecycle cost analysis
