This course will cover the in-depth mechanisms and the main causes of corrosion in the oil and gas production system as well as the monitoring and mitigation methods. It will provide an appropriate balance of necessary theory and practical applications to solve/mitigate corrosion – related problems.
The course content is practically based on a field facilities engineering point of view, as opposed to a more narrowly-specialized corrosion engineering or chemistry view point.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Review approaches used in selecting materials and coatings for corrosion resistance for different conditions and applications
- Identify the corrosion mechanism and estimate / predict the corrosion rate.
- Select and utilize corrosion inhibitors for different corrosion environments.
- Select and apply corrosion monitoring techniques to create an integrated monitoring program
- Evaluate current requirements, and the design principles of simple cathodic protection systems.
