Course - Internal Corrosion for Pipelines - Basic


This course was designed to provide students with the fundamentals of implementing, monitoring, and maintaining an internal corrosion control program as part of an overall Pipeline Integrity Management program. It is an introductory level course focusing on internal corrosion of liquid and natural gas pipelines used for transmissions, storage, and gathering systems. The course combines lecture, hands-on field testing and case studies. The course concludes with both a written and practical examination. The practical examination includes OQ Covered Task Assessments for the following tasks: (1) Insert and remove internal corrosion coupons, (2) Measurement of corroded area and pit depth measurement (with pit gauge), (3) Measure wall thickness using handheld ultrasonic meter.
