Title: Corrosion and Fouling Management
Start Date: 31 January 2021 End Date: 04 February2021
Venue: Abu Dhabi, UAE
Training will be held at any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.
Corrosion and fouling problems occur in the petroleum refinery in various processes and operations. The magnitude of a petroleum refinery unit and the complex of the processes are such that a wide variety of equipment types can be subject to corrosion and fouling depending on the process. Some refinery equipment types are more vulnerable to corrosion and fouling, than others usually due to their role in the process. Uncontrolled corrosion in petroleum refineries can cause release of hazardous substances and components or can reduce both the performance and reliability of equipment until their failure. As such, corrosion hazards can put at risk the safety and well?being of plant employees and the general public as well as lead to severe damage of process units, and in some cases shutdown of refinery operations.
In petroleum refineries, many processes are subject to problems with heavy fouling that affect overall plant performance and profitability. Operating costs associated with fouling in refinery heat exchangers typically include increased fuel needs, increased pumping power, and reduced throughput and capacity of produced products. Estimates have been made of fouling costs, due primarily to wasted energy caused by excessive fuel use, that are as high as 0.25% of the gross national product of the industrialized countries.

Pre & Post Tests will be conducted
Case Studies, Group Exercises, Group Discussions, Last Day Review &Assessments will be carried out.
Define Management Consultancy & Training Certificate of course completion will be issued to all attendees.
A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
All presentations are made in excellent colorful power point. Very useful Course Materials will be given.
