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.
