Why Choose this Training Course?
Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) is one of the most insidious integrity threats not only to the upstream oil and gas assets, but also to the associated reservoirs. Poor and inadequate MIC mitigation therefore results both in asset equipment deterioration and reservoir souring and plugging. Furthermore, MIC deterioration rates could reach several millimeters per year. Consequently, once bacterial contamination is introduced into the system, MIC could produce corrosion leaks and failures in a very short period of time.
Therefore, it is of paramount importance to appreciate how and where bacteria grow, what their metabolism reactions are and how they could render their living environment a corrosive one. More importantly it is equally important to appreciate what the best techniques are for assessing bacterial populations and Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion and then how to control and mitigate them.
This PetroKnowledge online training course has been based on extensive field experience in various continents and regions and offers various best practices in MIC monitoring, assessment and mitigation from around the world. Furthermore, the online training course also demonstrates how the corrosion management concept could be utilized to significantly enhance Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion control and mitigation in any upstream oil and gas asset exposed to MIC.
