Corrosion is a problem encountered by the owners and operators of facilities such as liquid and gas pipelines. If corrosion is not controlled, it can result in unnecessary costs associated with facility maintenance, repair or replacement. It can also result in costs associated with damage to public property, the environment and risk to public safety. It is now well established that the global cost of corrosion runs in trillion dollars, with the majority of failures indeed associated with corrosion, and in the case of oil and gas pipelines, more than half accounting for internal corrosion. This course is designed to present an overview of what is considered to represent the ‘best practice’ in controlling and managing internal and external corrosion in oil and gas pipeline systems, whilst also addressing a number of key areas including corrosion fundamentals, relevant corrosion mechanisms, corrosion control and mitigation techniques, corrosion monitoring methods and options for pipeline repairs.
