OBJECTIVES:
To understand the types of corrosion found in the petroleum industries. This course will provide the student with knowledge of the analytical methods needed to diagnose, treat, and monitor corrosion to reduce costs, protect the environment, and increase safety.

UNIT I

9

Corrosion in oil and gas production. Introduction to corrosion control. Definitions: Materials involved. Basic corrosion principles, corrosion rate. Electrochemical reactions. Electrode potentials-passivity-temperature-pressure-velocity-conductivity-pH-dissolved gases.

UNIT II

9

Forms of corrosion-uniform-pitting-Galvanic erosion-Intergranualar and weld corrosion, selective Leaching, stress corrosion. Hydrogen embitterment-Fatigue. Role of oxygen in oil filed corrosion-downhole and surface equipment-water flood Removal of oxygen, analysis and criteria for control.


UNIT III

9

Role of carbon dioxide (CO2) in corrosion-Effect of temperature and pressure Corrosion of well tubing and other equipments. Role of hydrogen sulphide (H2S)-Corrosion in downhole, surface, storage and pipelines.

UNIT IV

9

Corrosion prevention-Cathodic protection. Principles of operation-applications Galvanic systems, corrosion prevention-coatings-corrosion prevention inhibitors-types of corrosion inhibitors-choice and selection.

UNIT V

9

Oil treatment corrosion-crude oil properties-desalting-distillation and other processing case histories, sweetening processes-subsea systems corrosion. Inspection and corrosion monitoring case history-oil storage tank corrosion-Oilfield and oil treating facilities-offshore platforms-down hole equipments.

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS
