Prediction results from a dozen CO2 corrosion models are known to vary wildly. This article discusses the need for CO2 corrosion model validation and introduces the CO2 corrosion model validation matrix and index score system for an objective and effective validation of a CO2 corrosion model’s performance. Corrosion Model Validation  CO2 corrosion is a recognized integrity threat worldwide. CO2 corrosion modeling has been used at both the design and operation
