The corrosion issue, which was difficult to tackle as the former Soviets had predicted in the first place, was not appropriately addressed by the colonialism-tailored oil production, resulting in astronomical budget blow-out and environmental disaster in the North Caspian Sea region. Unfortunately, limited information on the pipeline leaking accidents regarding the project cost, social impact, and environmental impact was released to the public. The purpose of the review is to draw attention to the Kashagan pipeline leaking accidents, the factors that influence corrosion management for oil production, and the consequences of not adopting proper corrosion control.
