Corrosion is an unfortunate given in the oil and gas industry. If that corrosion goes undetected, the results can be disastrous, and very costly. Only with proper attention to safeguards, maintenance and modern protective technologies can help the world's oil supplies remain steady, and the environment safe from disaster. The total annual cost of corrosion in the oil and gas production industry is estimated to be $1.372 billion, broken down into $589 million in surface pipeline and facility costs, $463 million annually in downhole tubing expenses, and another $320 million in capital expenditures related to corrosion.

Fleming Gulf's “Corrosion Management Summit in Oil and Gas 2012” will address the key issues and prevention strategies in corrosion in the Oil and Gas industry as well the technology implemented to deal with the assets to corrosion control.

The presence of carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and free water can cause severe corrosion problems in oil and gas pipelines. One of the biggest shortcomings in the field of corrosion management is the lack of skilled personnel. Protecting the integrity of oil and gas assets depends both on effective corrosion engineering, and corrosion management. The industry needs skilled engineers understand the industry, the chemistry of corrosion and the technologies required to address it.

Corrosion management is part of an overall system, which develops, implements, reviews, and maintains both policy and strategy for managing, mitigating and preventing corrosion. While it may not be possible to completely eliminate any instance of corrosion and the leakage that results, proper attention, maintenance and technology will keep it to a manageable level.
