This course is designed for managers, engineers and operators requiring an understanding of corrosion fundamentals: the causes and control of corrosion in oil and gas production and processing. This course will provide an overview of what corrosion is and what the major corrosion issues are in upstream oil and gas operations. The focus will be on understanding how materials corrode, what techniques are used to monitor corrosion and some basic corrosion control fundamentals. You will be introduced to inhibitors and how they work, corrosion monitoring in field applications and cathodic protection. The course content is presented from a practical production operations viewpoint and provides participants with the basic skills and understanding to control and solve corrosion issues.  

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
