Corrosion, the most common threat in the Oil and Gas industry, is almost impossible to prevent. It is, therefore, becoming more apparent that controlling the corrosion rate may be the most economical solution. The total annual cost of corrosion in the global oil and gas production industry is estimated to be US$1.372 billion, broken down into US$589 million in surface pipeline and facility costs, US$463 million annually in downhole tubing expenses, and another US$320 million in capital expenditures related to corrosion.

It is widely recognized within the oil and gas industry that effective management of corrosion will contribute towards achieving the following benefits:

  • Statutory or corporate compliance with HSE policies
  • Reduction in leaks
  • Increased plant availability
  • Reduction in unplanned maintenance
  • Reduction in deferment costs

At the 7th Annual Corrosion Management Summit, executives will have the opportunity to address the most current issues of corrosion with their peers and seek solutions. More importantly they will have the opportunity to:

  • Interactively discuss the challenges with industry experts and hear about their experiences
  • Learn how to effectively deliver a corrosion control program that reduces costs and maximizes operational efficiency
  • Understand new technologies and best practices undertaken by industry experts
  • Evaluate strategies to adapt new infrastructure to different environmental conditions in order to reduce future corrosion risks
  • Analyze new found solutions in order to maintain the integrity of assets reducing the possibility of high investment for new equipment and materials
  • Identify ways of reducing operational downtime through non-intrusive and non-destructive testing techniques
