The first step in the safety and reliability of refinery equipment is identifying, understanding, and preventing the relevant failure mechanisms. Corrosion is the primary cause of the failure of components in the process industries. Corrosion damages the engineering components contaminate the products and reduces safety.

Premature failure of critical components results in operating downtime, loss of production, environmental pollution, and in some cases, loss of human life. The annual losses due to corrosion and the cost of rectification run to several billion dollars.

This Corrosion Management in Oil and Gas Industry covers the most important practical methods to achieve corrosion con. You will learn mitigation techniques, testing, and monitoring of corrosion rate. Corrosion control methods like cathodic protection, materials selection, and using the inhibitors will be discussed in the course. It will provide knowledge in reducing the cost of corrosion management. Additionally, you will gain knowledge in the prediction of failure patterns, residual life measurements, preventive measures, and approaches in corrosion studies for the safe and economic operation of plants and machinery.


At the end of this Corrosion Management in Oil and Gas Industry training course, delegates will be able to understand:

  • The basics of corrosion, its risk, and impacts on Oil & Gas industry installations
  • Different types of corrosion and their control
  • The economic, environmental, and safety significance of corrosion
  • Overview of different methods for monitoring corrosion
  • Overview of corrosion protection techniques
  • Cathodic protection and coating
  • Identify the difference between the scarified and impressed current anodes
  • The instrumentation required for cathodic protection of underground pipelines
  • Various inspections, monitoring, and testing practices


The corrosion Management in Oil and Gas Industry course is designed for technical persons working in industries, where the corrosion problem is a major concern. Anyone who needs to recognize corrosion, understand its devastating potential, and how properly select and use corrosion control methods. Recommended for Engineers, Technicians, Managers, Supervisors, Inspectors, and anyone who needs to enhance their skills in corrosion control.


This training seminar will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques. Beginning with the day-to-day problems seen all over the world in oil and gas installations and explaining the basic principles. A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivating everybody to find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
