Oil & Gas Management

Corrosion Management in Production and Processing Operations- OGM 8007

18 Apr 22-27 Apr 22 (London, UK), 01 Aug 22-05 Aug 22 (Dubai, UAE), 05 Dec 22-09 Dec 22 (London, UK),

Course Overview

This course is designed for managers, engineers, chemists, and operators needing to understand corrosion and its control management in oil and gas production and processing. It will cover the main causes of corrosion in upstream oil and gas operations, as well as monitoring and mitigation methods. The various corrosion mechanisms give rise to a number of different forms of corrosion damage which will all be considered. Focus will be on the approaches to selecting materials and coatings for corrosion resistance for different conditions and applications, including the use of NACE MR0175. Discussions will also be on CP surveys, selecting the CP system type, estimating current requirements and the design principles of simple cathodic protection systems. Delegates will learn how to select and apply corrosion monitoring techniques to create an integrated monitoring program and how to select and utilize corrosion inhibitors for different systems
