Why Choose this Training Course?
As hydrocarbon reservoirs mature production rates could drop due to a decrease in the associated reservoir pressure. One solution is to use seawater injection to maintain reservoir pressure and seawater injection systems are a common and widespread tool for maintaining production rates or increasing them.
The Middle East Region is home to some of the biggest seawater injection systems in the world with even bigger ones being built. Therefore, understanding how such systems work, what the common integrity threats are and how they are efficiently and successfully mitigated is of paramount importance.
Simultaneously, corrosion management is a rather fresh, but very useful and efficient concept. Thus, corrosion management applications could be used to further improve the incumbent asset integrity management systems associated with any seawater injection system. The main benefits of such corrosion management applications within any seawater injection system are improving corrosion failure pre-emption capability (within the seawater injection system concerned) and optimizing the associated corrosion and integrity costs.
In summary, this training course begins with a general introduction of a typical seawater injection system and then reviews the encountered deterioration mechanisms, their detection, monitoring, assessment and mitigation. Finally, it introduces the corrosion management concept and describes how corrosion management applications could significantly improve corrosion control within any seawater injection system.
