Corrosion in Non Conventional Oil & Gas

  • Corrosion in the Oil & Gas Industries
    October 10, 2017
    8:30 am - 5:30 pm

The Petroleum & Chemical Processing Industry Technical Group provides a technical platform for the Oil & Gas Industries.
It is a forum to discuss the latest developments and best practices in materials engineering and corrosion control in onshore and offshore environments.  This one day technical event will look into the following areas:

  • Remote inspection techniques
  • Onsite inspection techniques
  • Microbiologically influenced corrosion
  • Corrosion under insulation
  • Latest technologies to assist in finding hidden corrosion
  • Case Studies – onshore and offshore

Speakers and participants will have the opportunity to share their work and experiences from the Oil & Gas Industries to develop best practices, share solutions and look at new technologies.
