University of Leeds and Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre begins a new collaboration on corrosion product augmentation. Professor Anne Neville’s group at University of Leeds brings important experience relevant to the Danish North Sea and the research conducted in the centre.

To complement the capabilities within the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) a new collaboration has been launched.  In the “Enhanced Well Chemistry and Integrity” research programme, the work is directed towards understanding effects and interplay between fluid chemistry and well metal materials with an overarching aim to predict and mitigate corrosion and scale build-up.

“We want to further fuel the research in the programme and have therefore engaged with Professor Anne Neville’s group at University of Leeds. They will soon start up a PhD student who will do research within corrosion inhibition and will work to find alternatives to existing technologies,” tells Kitt Ravnkilde, Programme Manager at DHRTC.

Professor Neville has worked extensively with corrosion and wear under conditions relevant to the Danish North Sea sector. The group brings important experiences that will be central to DHRTC’s further work in the research programme under Professor Rajan Ambat at DTU Mechanical Engineering, especially on the impact of corrosion inhibitors.

The collaboration agreement runs for three years and begins the 1st of June 2018.
