Corrosion Management in Production and Processing Operations-OG 8025

9th April - 13th April 2018 (London, UK) 6th August - 10th August 2018 (Dubai, UAE) 3rd December - 7th December 2018 (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
