Couse description

The production of gas and oil is often accompanied by water and acid gases, such as (H2S) and (CO2) are often present in produced fluids. These increase the corrosivity of the process, which can significantly impact the safe operating life of pipes and equipment. Additionally, the build-up of corrosion and bacterial by-products on the equipment walls can cause problems with the equipment’s operation.
The potential consequences of internal and external corrosion represent both safety and economic concerns to various sectors of the industry. Corrosion is fought by a complex system of monitoring, preventative repairs and careful use of materials.
This intensive D. McKINSEY & ASSOCIATES LTD. training course in Nigeria examines the types of corrosion and corrosion control in the gas, oil and water industry and provides an overview of specific process descriptions, and focuses on the examination and identification of metallurgical problems in process units and methods of corrosion monitoring, control and damage reduction.
This D. McKINSEY & ASSOCIATES LTD. training course will feature:
• Fundamental corrosion principles and mechanisms
• Types of corrosion that are related to the oil, gas and water
• Materials of Construction for process applications
• Corrosion Monitoring and inspection Methods
• Aspects of Corrosion inspection and anti-corrosion management and mitigation
