Application of Holography in Subsea Pipeline Corrosion Control



Oil leak caused by pipeline corrosion has always be a seriously problem in oil industry. Not only the economic loss happens in oil company, but also sever damages to the environment around the pipe line. Due to the problems caused by oil leak, lots of technologies have been developed to monitoring and controlling pipeline corrosion.In the age of technology, holography is a very advanced and popular optical technology in the world, and has been used in the industry engineering area. This paper is going to clearly and simply clarify the working concept of holography, and some applications of this optical method in oil and gas industry.
