Acidization is one of the most important techniques to increase the productivity of crude petroleum oil and gas wells. The effective way for protecting these oil well tubular materials is by using corrosion inhibitors during the acidization process. The present study deals with the evaluation of inhibition effect of ethanolamines on oil well tubular materials of grade N-80 steel in 15 percent hydrochloric acid at room temperature with 0-2 percent amine concentrations. The amines such as mono, di and triethanolamine were studied for their inhibiting capacity by mass loss method, DC polarization method and AC impedance method. The inhibitor efficiency increases with increasing concentration of amines. Monoethanolamine is found to be more effective than the other two amines
