Corrosion Control in Gas, Oil & Water


This training course provides deep knowledge of corrosion control in the oil, gas, and water industries.

It examines and identifies metallurgical problems in process units, including metallurgy and corrosion control in oil and gas production and monitoring and damage reduction methods.

Corrosion control in gas and oil sectors and corrosion control in water fields is vital, as equipment costs are a considerable part of the investment in these areas.

For long-distance, large-diameter pipelines, costs can become prohibitively high if the fluid's corrosivity necessitates using corrosion-resistant alloys instead of carbon steel.

By better understanding and controlling corrosion, we can increase its application range and thus have a significant economic impact through corrosion control engineering and corrosion control training courses.

Corrosion Control in Oil & Gas:
