University teachers, scientists and researchers and in particular their undergraduate and postgraduate students, preparing their graduate theses will benefit from reading, employing and owing this well–organized volume. (Materials and Corrosion, 1 November 2012)"Overall I liked this book. Most professional books are not cheap and neither is this one. However, whereas I have found many such books do not altogther justify their price tags, this one does." (TCE– The Chemical Engineer, 1 November 2011)
"It is also an asset to the entry–level corrosion control professional who may have a theoretical background in metallurgy, chemistry, or a related field, but who needs to understand the practical limitations of large–scale industrial operations associated with oil and gas production." (Breitbart.com: Business Wire, 22 February 2011)
From the Back Cover
Expert guidance on the proper use of technology to assess, prevent, and reduce corrosion plaguing the oil industry
This practical guide for engineers and related professionals in the oil and gas production industries gives an insightful overview of why corrosion occurs in metals in drilling, producing wells, and pipelines; what responses are required when corrosion surfaces; and how the spread of corrosion can be greatly minimized by putting proper corrective measures in place.
Beginning with discussion of basic theoretical concepts associated with metallurgy and electro–chemistry, Metallurgy and Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production offers an all–encompassing perspective with useful lessons emphasizing the key roles of both the chemical and material aspects of corrosion. It teams reliable tactics with cutting–edge technologies to guide oil industries in formulating a battle plan to protect valuable equipment from drilling rigs to the pipelines themselves against the ferocious tenacity of ocean waters.
Dealing with subjects not taught in most formal classroom settings, this enlightening text:
Contains detailed photographs to illustrate descriptions in the text
Offers an introduction to corrosion for entry–level corrosion control specialists
Addresses corrosion technologies such as corrosion inhibitors and cathodic protection in greater detail than in any other currently available reference book
Provides guidance on the appropriate materials selection and corrosion control methods appropriate for use by oilfield engineers and managers
Explains what inspection and monitoring techniques can, and cannot, do to address corrosion and reliability issues
A significant and much–needed addition to an industry beset by technological and financial challenges, Metallurgy and Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production offers responsible solutions that oil companies can apply immediately to repress corrosion and turn a major concern into a manageable one.See all Product description
