The annual cost of corrosion worldwide is over 3% of the world’s GDP. There are hundreds of thousands of kilometers of pipelines in various sectors of industry, which include many uncoated pipelines in chemical manufacturing plants, interstate natural gas transmission lines, and offshore oil-and-gas production pipelines. Mathematical modeling is richly endowed with many analytic computational techniques for analyzing real life situations. This paper reviewed that the predictive models on corrosion rate for natural gas pipeline. These models were selected based on the thermodynamic properties of the fluid and the developed rate is plotted against various operating conditions.
