Oil and Gas Companies main product is the Condensate arid Natural Gas. The Gas which is comes from reservoir' through Wells contains different other Gases like Hydrogen Sulfide, Carbon Dioxide, Carboii Moiioxide etc. The Hydrogen Sulfide gas has the capability to increase the corrosion rate of metal arid act as a catalyst in corrosion reaction, the repercussion of the increase in corrosion reaction is the loss of valuable equipment well before their expected life, for that reason in order to mitigate the corrosion rate the Corrosion Inhibitor (Cl) is injected in the Well casings and Feeder lines (connect Gas Well to plant) in a certain quantity thorough specialized pumps. The corrosion inhibitor is a costly item and should be utilized in the standard quantity.
One of the problem identified that the quantity and control limits of corrosion inhibitor is not known and a huge variation is observed when the consumption data is analyzed. In order to standardize the consumption of Cl the six sigma methodology is used. In this exercise, first the random sample has been taken of three year and evaluates the average quantity and control limits (UCL and LCL) of Cl, moreover to check and make this average quantity standardize or optimal a quality tools are utilized. After detail analysis it has been evaluated that we can make the average quantity which is 57.11 liters per month standardize and can use as a reference point. Moreover the control limits have also been ascertained.
