Corrosion & Metallurgy

Corrosion Control in the Oil and Gas Industry - Part 1


Corrosion problems have always presented a severe challenge to oil and gas producing operations. Operators plan for long periods of continuous production with maintenance scheduled for the prescribed shutdown periods. Unfortunately, corrosion does not always respect these schedules, resulting in severe economic penalties due to loss of product. In addition, the risk of pollution and hazards to safety are other important reasons for adequate corrosion engineering. Governmental legislation concerning oil and gas extraction is becoming more stringent in order to minimize these risks. Furthermore, corrosion hazards have intensified with extraction in deeper waters and in more hostile environments. Innovations aimed at reducing offshore field development costs involving reductions in platform weight, increasing use of satellite wells and subsea manifolds require specific attention to corrosion prevention.


By the end of this course, participants will know about:

  • Fundamentals of corrosion
  • Corrosion problems
  • The importance of internal and external protection
  • Material selection
  • The use of corrosion inhibitors
  • The risk of pollution and hazards

Target Audience

The course is designed essentially for those professionals employed by companies engaged in oil and gas production, as well as those with special functions such as:

  • Process Engineers
  • Inspection Personnel
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Material Selection Personnel
  • Corrosion Control Personnel
  • Plant Contractors
  • Safety Officers
  • Insurance Assessors
  • The staff of service companies providing corrosion inhibitors and overall corrosion services should find the course beneficial, as well as companies or manufacturers of marketing materials, coatings, and equipment for cathodic protection, inspection (NDT) and corrosion monitoring.

Corrosion & Metallurgy Outline
The course covers the following topics:
  • Introduction
  • External protection using corrosion-resistant materials
  • Coatings and cathodic protection
  • The importance of internal corrosion and its prevention
  • Material selection
  • Coatings and use of corrosion inhibitors
  • The contribution of inspection (nondestructive testing)
  • Corrosion monitoring to the overall operation
  • Corrosion problems concerning (risers) and subsea-lines
  • Methods for protection
