Course description

Maintaining the ageing infrastructure such as underground pipelines is a mission to the oil and gas industry worldwide. Corrosion is one of the main effects of ageing the industrial infrastructures. Comprehending its mechanism and how to control it, can lead to a stunning reduce in the cost of the products. Cathodic Protection (CP) is one of the most widely used ways to control corrosion control in the industry.

The CP is a method that eliminates the corrosion of metals by the application of an electric current. It is a technique that has been known for 160 years and is extensively applied to offshore pipelines and tank farms, etc with great success. However, despite this long history and broad applicability, it is a technique that is all too often inadequately, or even improperly. Applied; with the result that structures are poorly protected or, worse, adversely interfered with.

Cathodic Protection System in Oil & Gas Exploration Industry training course is designed to provide the theoretical basis and the practical ability necessary operate and maintain Cathodic Protection (CP) systems in the oil and gas surface production facilities. The course provides understanding of the basic principles of corrosion and applications of galvanic and impressed current CP systems.

This 10-day course provides an understanding of the field equipment used to monitor CP systems and how they work and the various factors that impact the performance of these systems, also provides an understanding of increased productivity by avoiding costly shutdowns thus reducing the cost of the overall corrosion control program.
