Corrosion Management in Production/Processing Operations - PF-22
This course will cover the main causes of corrosion in upstream oil and gas operations, as well as monitoring and mitigation methods. The various corrosion mechanisms give rise to a number of different forms of corrosion damage, which will all be considered.
Participants will estimate the corrosivity of a given environment through analysis of the chemical and physical characteristics of the system; review approaches to selecting materials and coatings for corrosion resistance for different conditions and applications (including the use of NACE MR0175/ISO 15156); and be introduced to cathodic protection (CP) surveys, selecting the CP system type, estimating current requirements, and the design principles of simple cathodic protection systems.
The participant will learn how to select and utilize corrosion inhibitors for different systems, and how to select and apply corrosion monitoring techniques to create an integrated monitoring program.
