Coating Asset Management

Corrosion Technical Series

Coating Asset Management

November 16 - 17, 2021
9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. CST (with breaks throughout) 2.5 hours each day

This 5-hour virtual short course discusses how to achieve corrosion control and increase the service life of critical assets and infrastructure through a comprehensive coatings and asset management strategy relying on data, science, and technology. Lecturers will equip you with the knowledge to make informed decisions related to managing coatings and asset integrity. Hear from subject matter experts representing the inspection, asset owner, engineering, and consultant point of view as they share lessons learned, best practices, and how they approach problems related to achieving a consistent and reliable coatings project across a variety of assets including pipelines, storage tanks, infrastructure, offshore platforms, and more.

Course highlights

  • Introduction to coatings and asset management (Why, How, What, How Often)
  • Coatings and Corrosion Management:
    • Established methods such as risk analysis, inspection and maintenance and how do you make them effective.
  • Data driven decisions - best economic and operational value and how to capture lessons learned to avoid future rework and make data-driven business decisions.
    • Availability of data to relevant stakeholders and ensure they can interpret it and how it ties to economic and operational value.
  • Inspection (In service vs In process)
  • Recommended inspection cadence? What, how, by when?
  • Engineering: proper installation, specification and standards, effective communication to team and asset owners.
  • Coatings: What do you need the coating to do? Qualify and select coatings for the environment, reduce maintenance cycles, how to get most out of the inspection, and understand what the coating manufacturer is accountable for.
  • Asset owners – what owners expect from teams working on their projects.
    • Understand available tools available and how to utilize them.
  • Panel and Case Study – learn to solve a problem using a CAM framework.

Learning objectives

  • Identify what an effective coatings asset management (CAM) framework looks like.
  • Recall common coatings asset management (CAM) strategies.
  • Differentiate between an in-process and in-service inspection and how to make effective decisions based on the two scenarios.
  • Summarize key points of data-driven decision making and how to communicate CAM data to key stakeholders.
  • Discuss the different stakeholder viewpoints (engineer, asset owner, coatings, and inspection) and how a CAM strategy would affect all value streams.
