Corrosion & Metallurgy

Corrosion Control in the Oil and Gas Production

Introduction

Oil and gas production facilities in contact with not only produced corrosive effluent but also soil and sea water are subject to corrosion. The Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production course covers the main corrosion problems experienced in oil and gas production and in different corrosion control systems used by the oil and gas industry.

The course includes internal corrosion by CO2 and H2S, top of line corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement, bacteria corrosion, sand erosion, control of internal corrosion by chemicals and corrosion-resistant alloys, corrosion monitoring, and external corrosion and its control by painting, coating, and cathodic protection.

This course is mainly practical. The theoretical part is limited to the minimum required for an understanding of the corrosion processes.


Objectives

By the end of this course participants will know about:

  • Corrosion in the Oil and Gas production facilities
  • Internal and external corrosion
  • Corrosion Mechanism
  • Corrosion control and prevention
