Article Type: Conferences, training and publications From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 60, Issue 3
The 2nd Annual Corrosion Management Summit seeks to furnish participants with the latest development in the industry related to corrosion. The three-day Summit will include specialized workshops, case studies and presentations on corrosion management.
Several major corrosion-related shutdowns of facilities and pipelines in the oil industry in UK has cost hundreds of millions of pounds to rectify. Major industry players are joining a significantly growing list of major repair projects initiated in Russia, India and the Middle East, all driven by problems with corrosion. To cope with corrosion, Dr Sami M. Al-Ghamdi, Team Leader of Downstream Corrosion Team of Saudi Aramco has joined the speaker panel at the 2nd Annual Corrosion Management Summit endorsed by NACE International – Qatar Section to be held on 6-8 May 2013 at Doha. Dr Al-Ghamdi will enlighten the attendees about “Saudi Aramco’s Corrosion Management Program Overview”. He will communicate on the goal to develop a risk based, Corrosion Management Program (CMP) with an analysis of how CMP fits with Asset Performance Management Program (APMP).
Mr Musaed Mohd Hemaiyan Al-Arada, Team Leader – Inspection & Corrosion from Kuwait National Petroleum Company will address the audience about “Integrity Operating Window (IOW) – A Reliable tool of Corrosion Management of Refinery Process Units”. He will advice the attendees about what is IOW, what are the essential elements in IOW Management System and the responsibilities of the departments/divisions in the refinery. Al Arada has over 18 years of experience in Inspection Field in Petroleum Refineries.
The 2nd Annual Corrosion Management Summit seeks to furnish participants with the latest developments in the industry related to corrosion. The three-day Summit will include specialized workshops, case studies, exhibitions, interactive discussions and presentations on corrosion management and engineering by well known experts across the globe. Through interactive sessions with leading Corrosion experts and solution providers, participants will be armed with better understanding of the requirements, strategies and implementations to ensure the right approach to integrate successful design and corrosion management principles.
Higher priority on both technology and management should be placed on the causes, monitoring of effect caused by corrosion, controlling its various outcomes and undertaking remedial work by international and state oil companies. Corrosion is one of the few phenomenas for which inspection techniques remain out of step with the reality of the chemical processes involved. The 2nd Annual Corrosion Summit is one of the few summits that will address one of the most ignored yet potent topics. This summit, with the help from industry leaders, will be an eye opener to many who are still fighting the consequences of corrosion.
