Introduction 

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 reduce in the cost of the products. Cathodic Protection (CP) is one of the most widely used methods to control corrosion control in industry. The CP is a method of that eliminates the corrosion of metals by the application of an electric current. It is a technique that has been known for 160 years, and is extensively applied to offshore 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.

Objectives

  • This 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.
  • The course provides understanding of the basic principles of corrosion and applications of galvanic and impressed current CP systems.
  • The course provides understanding of the field equipment used to monitor CP systems and how they work.
  • The course provides understanding of the various factors that impact the performance of these systems.
  • The course provides understanding of increase productivity by avoiding costly shutdowns thus reducing the cost of the overall corrosion control program.
