The course is aimed at plant engineers, non-destructive testing engineers, materials and corrosion engineers, plant inspectors responsible for managing the integrity of ageing process equipment, pipelines, boilers and storage tanks.
It is recommended that attendees have a knowledge of either the inspection, design, fabrication, operation or maintenance of process equipment and piping, as well as some knowledge of the most common pressure equipment design codes/standards.
Common damage mechanisms in all major oil and gas production, refining and manufacturing processes and where they can be found; key process parameters, prevention and control and the most appropriate inspection and non-destructive testing methods for these damage mechanisms.
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Confidently identify common damage mechanisms in major oil and gas production, refining and petrochemical processes and where they may be found
- Understand the key factors affecting these damage mechanisms and their prevention and control
- Recommend the most appropriate inspection and non-destructive testing methods for these damage mechanisms
