CORROSION MANAGEMENT IN OIL & GAS INDUSTRY : Material Selection & Applications
This course 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. Participants will estimate the corrosivity of a given environment through analysis of the chemical and physical characteristics of the system; review approaches to selecting materials and coatings for corrosion resistance for different conditions and applications; and be introduced to cathodic protection (CP) surveys, selecting the CP system type, estimating current requirements, and the design principles of simple cathodic protection systems. The course content is based on a field facilities engineering point of view, as opposed to a more narrowly-specialized corrosion engineering or chemistry viewpoint. It provides an appropriate balance of necessary theory and practical applications to solve/mitigate corrosion-related problems.
The course is meant to provide both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants should learn:
- The basics of corrosion chemistry
- The main corrosion mechanisms occur ring in oil and gas production/processing systems
- The different types of damage caused by corrosion
- Materials selection for corrosion prevention
- Some methods for conducting cathodic protection (CP) surveys
- Items to consider in corrosion inhibitor selection
- Key advantages and disadvantages of the various corrosion monitoring methods
- Where the main locations of corrosion concern occur within oil production systems, gas processing facilities (including amine units), and water injection systems.
At the end of the session, the participants should:
- Learn how to select and utilize corrosion inhibitors for different systems
- Learn how to select and apply corrosion monitoring techniques to create an integrated monitoring program.
