An Introduction To Recognition And Treatment Of Microbial Corrosion (MIC): Practical Tips For Engineers

Recorded On: 10/19/2017

One of the most significant issues - especially in the oil & gas industries- is the problem of understanding microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). In these industries MIC can occur in many equipment from pipelines to storage tanks and firewater rings. Even practices such as hydrotesting can induce corrosion in the form of MIC.

In this webinar, MIC is explained in engineering terms. In addition, existing methods for recognition and treatment of MIC with their limitations and intrinsic drawbacks will be explained. A short introduction to hydrostatic testing, hydrant rings failures and the possible role of intelligent pigging and the link between these practices and MIC is explained.

This webinar is categorized under the Projects, Facilities, and Construction discipline.
