The damage caused by crude oil impurities is in no way proportional to their small amounts, because there is an integrated system based on chemical composition and structure, chemical and electrochemical nature of corrosion processes, as well as sequence and synchronization between various damage mechanisms. Study of the influence of the heterogeneous metal content of the organic phase or steel matrix on premature failure of steel coils and equipment in oil refineries due to its aggressive role in corrosion processes allows us to reach certain rate-limiting stages of corrosion, which can help us describe better solutions to protect them against corrosion and premature failure. Industrial problems at which multiple sciences intersect represent challenging research tasks. On the other hand, solving them is as difficult as it is, as much as it adds wider interconnection between the various sectors of science, which would provide a clearer and deeper understanding to the problems faced by researchers that contributes to a multidimensional scientific-industrial development.
