Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is corrosion affected by the presence or activity of microorganisms in biofilms on the surface of the corroding material – a problem that threatens assets in many industries, including oil and gas. As a matter of fact, MIC has been reported to be the third most costly corrosion mechanism in the oil industry. Despite best efforts MIC returns on a regular ten year cycle resulting in major loss of integrity of pipelines and crude oil storage tanks. MIC presents a significant hazard to assets from the reservoirs to storage tanks therefore early identification and control is essential to prevent run-away irreversible loss of asset integrity. Join this course to learn about the best practices to identify and control the MIC in your assets and facilities.

Great course with experienced facilitators. Great learning and discussions.
Thanks again to Michael and Roger, I thoroughly enjoyed the course. My favourite aspect was the time taken to go everything in detail on the slides (e.g. talk through all the schematics and tables in details). This made the material easy to follow at a good pace.
Highly participatory and inclusive course! I have gained a lot of knowledge, excellent trainers, nice and inspiring group.
Qualified trainers, good course organization.
