The purpose of this course is to provide the attendees with an overview of corrosion concerns in upstream production of Oil & Gas industries. It aims to identify and examine corrosion, metallurgical and materials failures that can occur in any process units within this industry. The attendees will have an opportunity to examine techniques and practices that can be used to control corrosion and enhance the integrity of the production plant. This course is designed for all disciplines engaged in the day to day operation of the plant. It includes, but not limited to, Corrosion and inspection engineers, Equipment, Process, Mechanical, Metallurgical Engineers, integrity managers, project engineers and all technologists who are involved with hydrocarbon production, processing, safety and commissioning. Management will also benefit by increasing their awareness of corrosion monitoring to maintain the plant in a safe mode. In addition, manufacturers of equipment, suppliers of materials to this industry and the procurement team engaged in the project will also benefit attending this course.

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of Introduction to hydrocarbon production, Basic Corrosion , Types and Control measures, applicable to this industry
  • Impact of corrosion and type of corrosion damage in oil and gas production
  • Materials selection strategy and the types of materials used in petroleum industry by analysing the life cost approach.
  • Types of standards used in oil and gas production industry
  • Main types of corrosion and their perdition in petroleum industry covering
  • Understand the failure mechanism imposed by sour service and the methods to tackle the failure by understanding NACE MR0175/ISO 15156
  • Sweet and Atmospheric corrosion
  • Water injection corrosion
  • Materials selection and optimization in drilling, well completion, surface/topside facilities and pipelines
  • Whole life cost analysis
  • Corrosion mitigation methods i.e. Chemical injection, Coating, Cathodic Protection and design concerns
  • Qualification methods of corrosion inhibition, biocide injection, scale inhibitor.
  • Case histories and hands on exercises
  • Describe techniques that can be utilized for mitigation of each mechanism of corrosion
  • Identify and define the dominating categories of process and environmental related corrosion.
  • Identify areas susceptible to failure.
  • Identify and explain mechanical failure that may occur in equipment and utilize appropriate techniques for prevention.
  • Identify the influential parameters in corrosion processes of each unit.
  • Understand the most advanced Corrosion Monitoring Techniques
