Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) program to increase oil production from mature fields are now being implemented in Indonesia amid concern over the continuous decrease of oil production level. The mature fields and EOR process have the tendency to carry relatively high impurities components (CO2, H2S, chloride ions) that results in early corrosion occurrence, creating damages in the subsurface equipment (wellhead, tubing, Xmas tree, etc). In Java area with 0.09 TSCF potential gas reserves, 49.3 MMSTB oil and + 23% CO2 content, such amount of CO2 gas and possibility of H2S and chloride from the reservoir will require a higher grade material than the conventional carbon steel. This paper discuss the preliminary materials selection process in the program plan based on the existing condition. The material selection based on the evaluation of closest field data, literature review as a comparison, material, and fluid analysis test. Duplex 22Cr-15 Cr materials are the main study in the paper as the candidate for the tubing material in high CO2, high H2S and chloride environment. The polarization result in 27°C and 50°C showed that the chrome 22 %Cr material had pitting tendency in chloride ion 25,000 ppm, while at high temperature (80 °C) the pitting tendency shifted to 5,000 ppm of chloride ion.
