Materials and Welding Challenges for Offshore Oil & Gas Industries


Introduction:

Offshore Oil and Gas industries always operate in a highly demanding environment. Materials Selection, Welding & Corrosion challenges are immense and require excellent knowledge and expertise.

This course is an extensive, in-depth 5-day course on welding, metallurgy, and corrosion aspects of various materials used in Offshore Oil and gas Industries and is targeted to develop the skills in handling these underlined issues. This course discusses in great detail, various alloys, their metallurgical properties, design requirements as per the construction codes, welding practices, damage mechanisms, mitigation in offshore oil and gas production environments. It narrates materials selection criteria, welding problems, corrosion requirements, and the best ways to achieve the best results under most demanding offshore oil and gas production environments
