Maintaining the ageing infrastructure such as underground pipelines is a challenge to the oil and gas industry worldwide. Corrosion is one of the major causes of ageing the industrial infrastructures. Understanding its mechanism and how to control it can lead to a remarkable reducation in the operation cost of piping and static equipment.
Cathodic Protection (CP) is one of the most widely used methods to control corrosion control in industry. The Cathodic Protection is a method of that eliminates the corrosion of metals by the use of sacrificial anodes or the application of an electric current. It is a technique that has been known for 160 years, and is extensively applied to pipelines and tank farms, etc with great success. However, despite this long history and broad applicability, it is a technique that is all too often inadequately or even improperly applied; with the result that structures are poorly protected or, worse, adversely interfered with.
This 5-day training course provides you with fundamental principles, evaluation and applications of Cathodic Protection, helping participants recognise them, select Cathodic Protection control methods and apply them to protect the assets of the organisation
This training course is designed to provide:
- The theoretical basis and the practical ability necessary operate and maintain Cathodic Protection (CP) systems in the oil and gas surface production facilities
- Understanding of the basic principles of corrosion and applications of galvanic and impressed current CP systems
- Understanding of the field equipment used to monitor CP systems and how they work
- Understanding of the various factors that impact the performance of these systems
- Learn about essential CP monitoring techniques to ensure effective operation
- Understanding of increase productivity by avoiding costly shutdowns thus reducing the cost of the overall corrosion control program
