Wed 29 March 2017, 17:30 – 18:45 BST
Live stream of the Technical Lecture of the IMarEST South East England & London Home Counties Branch, presented by Mr. James Krol CEng, Krol Consulting Ltd.
Corrosion continues to be the number 1 threat to offshore oil and gas facilities. Previous presentations by the lecturer have emphasised the importance of materials selection, but corrosion issues can still be encountered even when the correct materials are used, but when the operating conditions are quite different to those originally envisaged.
This lecture will present issues being experienced with bacterial corrosion, in particular Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC), with sources of bacteria in the system being inadvertently introduced by design flaws or by operating the system outside its design parameters. This presentation will include a demonstration of basic corrosion engineering principles which are the foundation of equipment designed to prevent marine growth occurring in piping systems - systems which have been compromised by the inadvertent introduction of bacteria.
