Corrosion Management for FPSOs

Corrosion Technical Series

Corrosion Management for FPSOs

August 10-11, 2021
9-11:30 a.m. CST each day (with breaks throughout)

This two-day virtual short course focuses on corrosion management of floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units and the extension of the life of offshore structures – fixed or floating static equipment, beyond that indicated by the original design philosophy. This series will provide insight into how to manage such concerns as process safety, material degradation, corrosion/erosion monitoring, non-destructive and intrusive inspection and maintenance.

Hear from subject matter experts as they discuss their best practices, lessons learned, and what they are seeing in the field as far as avoidable failures and opportunities for improved asset longevity and asset management. Each of the lectures will be followed by a live Q&A and a short break.
