Corrosion Management Essentials



This 2-day workshop explains the model process of corrosion management for the upstream oil and gas and offshore wind industries and is based on the EI publication Guidance for corrosion management in oil and gas production and processing. The workshop provides practical advice for successful implementation of a corrosion management policy using real-world examples of corrosion threats and mitigation methods.

This course is currently only available as a bespoke in-house option. For future open course dates, please check back periodically.

Attendees will gain an understanding of:
• the benefits of corrosion management in relation to safety and asset preservation
• how corrosion management fits into a wider safety framework and compliance with safety legislation
• the model process of corrosion management and the key features that need to be addressed
• practical knowledge of methods of implementation and system maintenance
• current practices compared with the model process and plan improvements.

What does the workshop cover?

Day 1
• Introduction to corrosion management and its purpose
• Overview of the corrosion management model
• Implementing a corrosion management policy and strategy
• Organisational structure and responsibilities
• Corrosion risk assessment and planning
• Exercise: comparing current practice

Day 2
• Implementation and analysis
• Monitoring and measuring performance
• Reviewing systems performance
• Long-term auditing of systems
• Exercise: Reviewing current practice and implementing change

Who is this workshop for?
Materials engineers, corrosion engineers and integrity engineers and their supervisors and managers, especially those moving into roles with responsibility for corrosion management and those seeking to improve existing systems. Those involved in the corrosion management process such as production technologists, inspection engineers, maintenance engineers, and others from operators and service contractors.

Some prior understanding of corrosion mechanisms and control methods and of oil and gas production and processing or offshore wind is useful for appreciation of the examples used in this course. Candidates who are not corrosion specialists may find it useful to review the Energy Institute’s Corrosion Threats Handbook before the course. This can be sent to delegates once course payment has been completed.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this workshop you will:
• Understand the model corrosion management process.
• Have learnt about the practical methods for implementation.
• Have had an opportunity to compare the model process with your own
• Have the knowledge to implement a corrosion management process in your own organisation.

Delegates will be provided with:
• A copy of Guidance for corrosion management in oil and gas production and processing, Energy Institute, 2008.
• A copy of the trainer’s presentation.
