Material Selection & Corrosion Control in Petrochemical Industries
Course Description
This course is designed for engineers engaged in the day to day operation and inspection of refinery. It includes, but not limited to, corrosion and inspection engineers, equipment, process, mechanical, inspection and metallurgical engineers, integrity managers, project engineers and all discipline engineers and technologists who are involved with hydrocarbon production, processing, safety and commissioning. In addition, manufacturers of equipment, suppliers of material to this industry will also benefit attending this course.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The purpose of this course is to provide the attendees with an overview of corrosion concerns in downstream oil & gas industries specific to refinery process units. It aims to identify and examine corrosion and metallurgical failures that may occur in any process and utility units within the refinery. The attendees will have an opportunity to examine techniques and practices that can be used to control corrosion.

Training Objective

By the end of this course delegates will learn about:

    • Develop a comprehensive understanding of materials selection and corrosion control strategy in the downstream oil and gas industries
    • Describe techniques that can be utilized for mitigation of each mechanism of corrosion
    • Identify and define the dominating categories of refining corrosion
    • Identify plants areas susceptible to high-temperature threat and materials that can be used for prevention
    • Identify and explain mechanical failure that may occur in equipment and utilize appropriate techniques for prevention
    • Describe additional types of corrosion occurs in utility units of petrochemical plants
    • Identify the influential parameters in corrosion processes of each unit
