The aim of this work is to analyze hydrogen damage and possible prevention in the oil refineries. Hydrogen damage failures are differentiated into two groups based on two mechanisms: electrochemical processes (mainly at low temperature, up to ̃100°C) arising from acid corrosion or cathodic protection, and high temperature (between 200 and 900°C) arising from the presence of hydrogen gas at high pressures. Examples of hydrogen damages and their analysis are given for the various units of oil refineries.
