Brief information is given about some results of internal corrosion monitoring carried out at SPD field pipelines during 2009-14. It is indicated that results generated by weight loss coupons do not achieve the purpose they are meant to achieve. It is argued that additional studies are required to refine the feasibility and scope of weight loss coupons application for pipeline corrosion monitoring in SPD.
