Corrosion Engineering Awareness in Oil & Gas Operations

Corrosion Engineering Awareness in Oil & Gas Operations

The Corrosion Engineering Awareness in Oil & Gas Operations course is designed to describe the corrosion process in gas/oil/water production systems, its control philosophy, practices and innovative approaches applied to combat corrosion problems. 

During this course, how the dominating factors of corrosion in treatment systems can be identified and how to mitigate their impact by material selection, inhibitor application or coating of critical sections is made clear. The impact of bacteria, oxygen ingress to the system as well as predictive methods for corrosion will also be discussed based on practical experience.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for those who are:

  • Engineers, project managers, chemists or field operational staff currently or potentially involved in corrosion processes
  • Corrosion engineers involved in the daily gas/oil/water treatment process
  • Professionals seeking an overview of sustainable application for corrosion management

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion of this course, participants will feel confident in their understanding of:

  • Basics in metallurgy and material selection
  • Types of corrosion in operation
  • Awareness of acid gas (H2S & CO2) corrosion systems
  • Impact of bacteria on corrosion
  • Screening and application methods for biocides
  • Types and efficiency of corrosion inhibitors
  • Application of corrosion inhibitors in field systems
  • Monitoring programs and calculating corrosion rates
  • Material selection for water systems
  • Heavy metals in produced brine and their impact on corrosion
  • Material selection versus inhibitor application
  • Coating materials for separators and pipelines
  • Computer programs to predict corrosion rates
  • Effective corrosion surveillance system
