Fundamentals of Corrosion Prevention and Monitoring in Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems (CS016F)

Fundamentals of Corrosion Prevention and Monitoring in Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems

In this course, you will discover the underlying principles, concepts, technical parameters, and practices related to internal pipeline corrosion prevention and monitoring, giving you an all-round understanding of prevention, control, monitoring and management.

On completion of the course, you will be able to give examples of internal corrosion monitoring and plan (under supervision) the prevention of internal corrosion. You will also be able to describe, discuss and explain internal corrosion mitigation and prevention.
