Upstream Corrosion and Microbiology

This course introduces the various forms of corrosion, what triggers corrosion, and lessons learned both from a financial and environmental aspect when maintenance and monitoring regimes lapse. Learning is through an effective blend of classroom theory sessions, exercises and group discussions on actual field case studies. A certificate is issued to delegates on successful completion of the course.

Learning Objectives

Many operating companies are still overlooking the root causes of corrosion in their production facilities, or have not yet obtained enough up-to-date accurate data to show them why they are developing corrosive conditions in their system. In order to reduce costly plant shut-downs and well workovers, it is vital to have background knowledge of the mechanisms that can influence the major causes of corrosion.

This training course is designed to give attendees a good understanding of corrosion mechanisms in general and of typical materials of construction, with a thorough understanding of the inter-relationship between microbial activity and reservoir souring that leads to the most commonly observed corrosion in production facilities and pipelines.

Key objectives of the course include:

  • Learn about the most common forms of corrosion found in the oil and gas sector, such as; general, under deposit and MIC: and the driving mechanisms and influences that determine the corrosion rate.
  • Understand the importance of material selection with suggestions for corrosion mitigation and monitoring programmes.
  • Determining which microorganisms play a significant part in the cause of corrosion, in particular the problems that sulphate-reducing archaea (SRA) and sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) cause.
  • You will learn about the different types of microorganisms found, how they can be monitored and controlled, with suggestions for suitable chemical dosing regimes.

Intended Audience (Industry/Role)

The two day course is suitable for anyone who has responsibility for, an interest in, or is affected by, corrosion in process vessels, piping and export pipelines, or the generation of H2S in topside facilities.
