Analysis of the origin and development process of each form of corrosion and possible methods of prevention.
Forms of corrosion studied: uniform, galvanic, pitting, crevice, inter-granular, selective, corrosion-erosion and cavitation, stress corrosion, contact corrosion.
TYPES OF CORROSION ENCOUNTERED IN THE OIL & GAS INDUSTRY
Each type of corrosion is studied together with possible remedial treatment:
Corrosion by hydrogen sulfide.
Corrosion by carbon dioxide.
Corrosion due to oxygen in aqueous environment.
Caustic soda corrosion.
Corrosion in acid gas treatment units.
Atmospheric corrosion or corrosion by sea water.
Corrosion by mercury.
Corrosion of reinforced concrete.
Case studies of corrosion observed in Oil & Gas installations: identification of the types of corrosion and suggested remedial treatments.
Design of equipment aimed at avoiding certain types of corrosion.
Choice of the materials best suited to the environment.
Corrosion inhibitors, filming, passivating, neutralizing, absorbing the oxygen.
Anticorrosion coatings and systems.
Cathodic protection with sacrificial anodes or imposed current.
Methodology and control of processes. Control of process and environmental parameters.
Analysis of the means of prevention implemented in the units.
CORROSION MONITORING - FUNDAMENTALS OF INSPECTION
Corrosion coupons and probes.
Non-destructive testing of the state of walls.
Corrosion monitoring plan.
Fundamentals of inspection.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
list the main characteristics and types of corrosion of metallic materials used in the Oil & Gas industries,
describe the means of protection against each type of corrosion,
select the most appropriated material for a given Oil & Gas application,
explain the available ways of monitoring the state of corrosion of a metallic equipment.
