Corrosion behavior of mild steel (MS) in simulated produced water (SPW) has been evaluated by AC impedance spectra. The influence of sodium potassium tartrate (SPT) on the corrosion resistance of mild steel in SPW has also been investigated. When 5000 ppm of SPT is added the corrosion resistance of MS decreases. Further, when 10000 ppm of SPT is added the corrosion resistance further decreases. This is revealed by decrease in charge transfer resistance (Rt), decrease in impedance value and increase in double layer capacitance (Cdl).
