    The advancement of methods and technologies in the oil and gas industries calls for new insight into the corrosion problems these industries face daily. With the application of more precise instruments and laboratory techniques as well as the development of new scientific paradigms, corrosion professionals are also witnessing a new era in the way data are gathered and interpreted. Corrosion and Materials in the Oil and Gas Industries draws on state-of-the-art corrosion and materials technology as well as integrity management to offer guidance on dealing with aging and life extension in the oil and gas industries.

    Get Expert Insights on Corrosion Identification, Prevention, and Mitigation

    The book features contributions by engineers, scientists, and business managers from around the world, including major oil- and gas-producing and -exporting countries. Organized into four parts, the book first provides introductory and background information. The second part explains the properties of construction materials and the underlying mechanisms of degradation, including a chapter on microbiologically influenced corrosion. The third part of the book delves into inspection and maintenance issues, examining material selection, corrosion prevention strategies, and the role of design. It also supplies models to help you estimate corrosion damage and select mitigation and monitoring techniques. The fourth part tackles corrosion hazards, safety and risk, and reliability. It also links corrosion mitigation and the management of asset integrity, highlighting the need for companies to maintain their infrastructure to remain competitive.

    Interpret Field Findings More Confidently and Discover Solutions to Your Corrosion Problems

    Throughout, this richly illustrated book combines theory with practical strategies and examples from industry. As infrastructure ages and is pushed beyond its original design life to meet increasing energy demands, it is essential that those responsible for managing the infrastructure have a thorough understanding of material degradation and corrosion. This book is an invaluable reference for anyone involved in corrosion management and materials selection, particularly in the oil and gas industries, whether upstream, midstream, or downstream.

    Reza Javaherdashti, PhD, earned his PhD on full scholarship from Monash University, Victoria, Australia. He has more than 15 years of corrosion management experience in various industries and especially in oil and gas upstream and downstream. He has authored or coauthored more than 40 root cause analysis reports for industries and is the author or coauthor of two books on corrosion published in the United Kingdom and the United States. He is a member of ACA, NACE, and the Institute of Corrosion.

    Chikezie Nwaoha (AMIMechE, MOSHAN) is an independent researcher and petroleum/natural gas engineer and a graduate of petroleum engineering from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Nigeria. He has co-edited two books, the Dictionary of Industrial Terms and Process Plant Equipment: Operation, Control and Reliability. He has also co-authored several scientific articles in leading international peer-reviewed journals. He is the downstream correspondent to Petroleum Africa magazine and a contributing editor to Control Engineering Asia, Oil Review Africa, Oil & Gas Eurasia Magazine, and PetroMin. He is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Nigerian Gas Association (NGA), Occupational Safety and Health Association Nigeria (OSHAN), and the Pipeline Professionals’ Association of Nigeria (PLAN). He is a guest member of the Subsea Integrity Research Group, University of Aberdeen, UK, and is currently a graduate student at the Petroleum and Petrochemical College, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.

    Henry Tan, PhD, is a senior lecturer in safety and reliability engineering and subsea engineering at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen, UK. He is also a guest professor at Zhejiang University, China; a member of the American Society for Quality; and a member of the National Subsea Research Institute, UK. Dr. Tan’s work on corrosion covers both industrial applications and theoretical fundamentals. His work published in Physical Review Letters 1998 on nanoscale chemical etching found cross-disciplinary applications including stress corrosion cracking, corrosion protection, tectonic engineering, and microelectromechanical systems. Dr. Tan received his academic training at Brown University, USA, and Tsinghua University, China.

    "... covers a wide spectrum of corrosion topics with rich illustrations, an easy-to-understand writing style, and the presentation of review articles, providing state-of-the-art corrosion-mitigation techniques useful for practicing engineers, technologists, and field technicians. It also provides a basic understanding of corrosion mechanisms, which will be equally beneficial to people who are not directly involved in the corrosion field to assist them in their related tasks. ... this book is equally suitable for undergraduate curriculums as well as for obtaining professional certification in the field of corrosion and material selection and design."
    —From the Foreword by Dr. Fakhruddin Habiby, MS, Ph.D., FICorr, NACE Certified Materials Selection and Design Specialist and Corrosion Specialist, Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada

    "It provides fundamental knowledge and background to engineers who are engaged in the operation of the oil and gas industries. In addition, by giving some practical examples, it enhances their understanding of the root cause of corrosion problems, which they may encounter in day-to-day operations."
