Participants in the workshop will gain an understanding of materials degradation/corrosion ramifications; materials selection and how to identify the various forms of corrosion attack.
This training gives a comprehensive review of materials failure and corrosion problems during oil and gas production/transportation and its mitigation. The failures mechanism will be examined with the various types in the oil and gas industry. Factors affecting each of the various forms of materials degradation and ways of mitigating this threat will be discussed. The principles of failures must be understood in order to effectively select materials and utilize metal structures for the optimum economic life of facilities and safety in oil and gas operations.
There are several methods for corrosion control: (i) proper material selection and design, (ii) metal coating, (iii) cathodic protection, (iv) corrosion inhibitors, (v) non-metallic materials, etc.
A metallurgical factor is the milestone of the right way for minimizing corrosion to be as less as possible in the most corrosive environment industries. There are many metallurgical factors that affect corrosion as, chemical composition, alloying elements, mechanical properties, heat treatment, surface coating, welding and manufacturing conditions and stresses (residual or applied).
Understanding these factors is of great importance to minimize failure in many industrial applications. Since the environment play an important role in materials corrosion, petroleum and chemical industries discovered various corrosion problems as, localised corrosion, corrosion fatigue, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), hydrogen embrittlement/sulfide stress cracking (SSC) – etc. Many of the corrosion failure problems can be prevented by a proper attention from the early stage of material manufacturing, processing, treatment and machining.
