                 CORROSION IN PETROLEUM & PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRIES AND PROTECTION

 

Course Description:

 

Corrosion problems have always presented a severe challenge to oil and gas producing operations. Operators plan for long periods of continuous production with maintenance schedules for the prescribed shutdown periods. Unfortunately, corrosion does not always respect these schedules, resulting in severe economic penalties due to loss of production. In addition, the risk of pollution and hazards to safety are other important reasons for adequate corrosion engineering.

 

 

Learning Objectives:

 

Upon completion of this course, you will gain an understanding of corrosion engineering in oil and gas refinery systems involving the various methods available for corrosion control, regulatory and safety matters, and the contribution of an integrated monitoring and inspection programme for operations and diagnosis of problems.

 

 

Who Should Attend:

 

This five-day course is designed essentially for process and mechanical engineers employed by the operating companies engaged in oil and gas refineries. The material is also appropriate for those personnel concerned with specialist functions in the oil industry including inspection, material selection, and corrosion control, as well as those involved in R&D.

 

Course Duration: Five Days

 

 

Course Methodology:

The course is highly interactive with case study, discussions and excellent presentation materials and contains detailed descriptions and easy to follow materials for practical applications.
