Duration: 4 days
The purpose of this course is to provide the attendees with an overview of corrosion concerns in offshore upstream production of Oil & Gas industries. It aims to identify and examine corrosion, metallurgical and materials failures that can occur in any process and utility units within this industry. The attendees will have an opportunity to examine techniques and practices that can be used to control corrosion and enhance the integrity of the production plant.
Suitability – Who should attend?
This course is designed for all disciplines engaged in the day to day operation of the plant. It includes, but not limited to, Corrosion and inspection engineers, Equipment, Process, Mechanical, Metallurgical Engineers, integrity managers, project engineers and all technologists who are involved with hydrocarbon production, processing, safety and commissioning. Management will also benefit by increasing their awareness of corrosion monitoring to maintain the plant in a safe mode. In addition, manufacturers of equipment, suppliers of materials to this industry and the procurement team engaged in the project will also benefit in attending this course.
