Why Choose this Training Course?
The annual losses due to corrosion and the cost of rectification run to several billion dollars in oil & gas exploration industries around the world. High production under aggressive and extreme operational conditions necessitates the development of new materials which also have peculiar failure behaviors. Thus the industry operators are on continuous perusal with different corrosion management strategies. Yet unforeseen failures of top-side, sub-surface and sub-sea infrastructure due to corrosion not only entails in loss of production but loss of life as well. Prediction of failure behaviors, remaining useful life, corrosion preventive measures are all approaches in corrosion management for safe and economic operation of production wells and other facilities. The Successful corrosion management influences the economic outcome of the company by ensuring cost effective selection of materials, chemical treatments, coatings, cathodic protection systems and appropriate designs.
What are the Goals?
This Petroknowledge Corrosion Control in Oil & Gas Industry training course is designed for engineers and operators engaged in oil and gas exploration industry requiring an understanding of corrosion fundamentals: the causes and control of corrosion in oil and gas production and processing. This course will provide an overview of what corrosion is and what the major corrosion issues are in upstream oil and gas operations. The focus will be on understanding how materials corrode, what techniques are used to monitor corrosion and some basic corrosion control fundamentals.
