About this Training

Corrosion is a natural process that deteriorates the integrity of materials, leading to significant economic and safety consequences in various industries, including infrastructure, manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation, and more. Effective corrosion management aims to prolong the service life of assets, reduce maintenance costs, ensure safety, and maintain the functionality of equipment and structures.

This course provides the basis for understanding systematic management of corrosion in relation to wider asset integrity management. It provides the strategies and tools required to implement an effective corrosion management system. The content uses oil and gas production to explain the concepts, but the principles can be applied to any industry sector where corrosion is a significant factor. Participants will also benefit from an appreciation of the influence of corrosion prevention and control in creating a more efficient approach to monitoring and management of asset integrity and inspection.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of corrosion management in relation to asset integrity management for all industry sectors
  • Recognize the key factors and benefits for systematic corrosion management
  • Develop the capability to implement a corrosion management system
  • Appreciate the broader aspects and implications of corrosion management
  • Have the opportunity to learn and share experiences of corrosion management

The course is intended for individuals who are involved in the design, operation and assessment of both onshore and offshore structures. The following personnel will benefit from the knowledge shared in this course:

  • Integrity engineers and managers
  • Corrosion engineers and managers
  • Inspection engineers and managers
  • Maintenance engineers and managers
  • Operations engineers and managers
  • Production chemists
  • Process engineers
  • Structural engineers
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Facilities engineers
  • Pipeline engineers
  • Contractor service managers
  • Basic or Foundation

Your expert course leader has a B.SC. (Eng.) and Ph.D in Metallurgy from Imperial College, London. He has more than 40 years’ experience in materials, corrosion, welding, inspection and integrity management mostly with Shell. His last position prior to retirement from Shell was as the global Principal Technical Expert for Upstream Materials. He has extensive experience in the oil & gas production, refining, chemicals, and R&D sectors; and has worked in the U.K., Netherlands, Norway, Middle East and Malaysia. He has been engaged in the specification, purchasing, and application of materials in Wells, and has been directly involved in many investigations of downhole failures. He has chaired the Energy Institute Corrosion Management Committee and the EFC Oil & Gas Working Party and is currently the chair for the EFC Taskforce for corrosion in green and low carbon energy technologies. Since 2017, he has worked as an independent consultant and as an external lecturer in materials and corrosion management at Robert Gordon University (Aberdeen). In 2019 he was awarded the prestigious Institute of Corrosion Paul McIntyre Award.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
