01T  Case Studies Gordon Suite
Session Chairpersons Eugenia Marinou - Lloyds Register, Mike Richardson - Spirit Energy
The wide spectrum of requirements for material selection and effective corrosion management throughout an asset's lifecycle presents both familiar and new challenges to be addressed. With ours being an industry with several decades of oil exploration and production and ageing facilities, we have the benefit and hindsight of both successes and failures, though our corporate memory is seldom perfect. Sharing these experiences is invaluable in allowing lessons to be learned and record them as we go forward, especially in today's difficult economic climate. This technical session focusses on case studies not only of attempts to understand corrosion mechanisms, but also methods of evaluating the extent of corrosion and ways to manage it. Presentations will cover diverse situations such as mature fields, pipelines, compression fittings, subsea wells and surface process pipework, while covering a wide geographic spread from the North Sea to the Far East.

02T  Validation of Chemical Solutions Gordon Suite
Session Chairpersons Neil Bretherton - Multi-Chem, Geert Marinus Van Der Kraan - Dow Microbial Control
The increasing maturity of the petroleum industry has led to ageing assets becoming commonplace throughout this global business. The widespread application of functional chemicals to mitigate the detrimental effects of the diverse corrosion mechanisms, particularly acid gas and microbially driven, are critical factors in achieving these ever extended field lives. Development and innovation continues as the industry seeks solutions to the traditional and new challenges created by the combination of ageing assets and the search for reserves in technically challenging environments. This session will focus on both new technology and recent developments to better align the laboratory selection, qualification and monitoring of chemical solutions with actual field applications; encompassing the laboratory screening of corrosion inhibitors, the laboratory testing of biocides under oilfield-relevant conditions, detection and monitoring of production chemicals in complex multiphase systems and a new bio-molecular scavenger technology.

03T  Corrosion Mechanisms and Diagnostics Gordon Suite
Session Chairpersons Valdir de Souza - Independent, Ole-Erich Haas - Axess A.S.
The understanding of the conditions and corrosion mechanisms is crucial to be able to provide a corrosion diagnostic and more importantly act on prevention, mitigation and management of associated risks. A lot of progress has been made on the identification of the corrosion mechanisms which in some respect, as it will be presented in this session, may challenge the traditional way of dealing with assessments and material selection. Moreover, the inherent further knowledge acquired over the years has helped to establish new approaches to assess the damage caused by a lack of corrosion management in new projects under development and on existing assets; providing therefore further support and more confidence on decisions for material selection on new builds and life extension of ageing assets.

04T  New Approaches to Inspection and Repairs Gordon Suite
Session Chairpersons Ismenia Alvarez - Apache North Sea Ltd., Boris Fergg - DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG
During the lifecycle of oil and gas assets, inspection becomes a significant part of the integrity management programme to ensure that all systems are maintained from commissioning to decommissioning to ensure they are fit for purpose. With the limitations in planned downtime and the fact that the majority of the assets are running long past their design life, it is imperative to become creative and innovative to ensure that technology, resources and tasks are properly allocated. In this technical session we will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share experiences in the most recent stage of new development and state of the art inspection and repairs.

05T  Sour Service Materials and Applications Gordon Suite
Session Chairpersons Oeystein Birketveit - Schlumberger, David Hillis - Total E&P UK Ltd
Environments containing hydrogen sulphide can present a variety of challenges for those tasked with managing oil and gas production activities. Related aspects vary from the avoidance of corrosion/environmentally assisted cracking by materials selection to the mitigation of reservoir souring behaviour to minimise H2S production. This technical session covers a range of topics related to sour production, including corrosion scaling, chemical treatment and material developments.
