Risks of Dangerous Corrosion Averted with Proper Knowledge, Strategy

IQPC’s Corrosion Management for Oil & Gas Summit Provides Strategies for the Efficient Detection, Management and Remediation of Corrosion in Oil & Gas Assets

 
PRLog - Aug. 23, 2012 - Houston, TX – Oil & Gas IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the Corrosion Management for Oil & Gas Summit (http://www.corrosionmgmt.com), to be held December 3-5, 2012, in Houston, Texas.  The Summit brings together oil & gas industry professionals to educate on strategies for the efficient detection, management and remediation of corrosion in oil and gas assets.

Corrosion is a given in the oil and gas industry, and recent studies have identified the costs of corrosion in the United States alone to be in the range of $300 billion, with companies spending upwards of 60 percent of operating costs on corrosion-related expenses.  Corrosion affects all segments of the oil and gas supply chain, including the upstream, midstream and downstream chains, refineries, pipeline transportation and storage terminals.  

Proper safeguards, maintenance and modern protective technologies are necessary to mitigate risk to the world’s oil supplies and safeguard the environment from potential catastrophe.  

Breakthroughs are being made in an effort to combat and prevent corrosion.  Various coating systems provide a protective solution to both on- and off-shore production, all gearing toward providing cost-effective products.  Personnel are learning about the effect of corrosion on the greater scale, but the overall industry still lacks enough knowledge to fully protect the integrity of their assets.

IQPC’s Corrosion Management for Oil & Gas Summit is set to deliver the latest information regarding corrosion monitoring, control and economic influences.  Highlights of the event include case studies and workshops tackling the fundamentals of corrosion, including its effect on the production process and environment.  Attendees will be exposed to a wealth of knowledge regarding the corrosion management, allowing them to bring new insight and strategies to their worksites.

At this event, attendees can network and strategize with industry leaders from a variety of sectors:

•   Oil & Natural Gas Producers – Chiefs, VPs and Directors of Engineering & Technology, Materials and Assets
•   Pipeline Operators – Operations Support Engineers, Pipeline Engineers and Corrosion Managers
•   Off-shore Rig Operators – Chiefs, VPs and Directors of Maintenance and Engineering Pipelines
•   Gas-fired Power Plants – VPs of Engineering, Processes and Transmission Operations

IQPC’s Corrosion Management for Oil & Gas Summit takes place December 10-12, 2012 in Houston, TX.  To learn more about this conference, please visit http://www.corrosionmgmt.com or contact Program Director Alex Chard at Alex.Chard@IQPC.com.
