Materials and Product Design for Oil and Gas Industry

workshop - School of Mechanics
March 2, 2020
9 a.m.




7 Hours

This workshop is of two folds. One session deals with the Materials used in Oil and Gas industries, whereas the other deals with Product Design concepts for the components used in Oil and Gas Industries.

Materials for Oil and Gas industry
The world’s highest-risk involved business is oil and gas exploration, where more amount of money is invested for a single well and also the highest revenue-generating business, which is ruling the world today. For oil and gas production, the pipes, valves and other mechanical pieces of equipment are designed with high pressure and high-temperature considerations. In these applications, the metallurgy of steels also differs compared to other industrial applications. As the pipe and other vessels are subjected to the marine environment, the metallurgy of steels plays a major role in deciding the life of the component against corrosion, wear and other mechanical failures.
This workshop is about the metallurgy of steels for oil and gas application. This will include the scope of the metallurgy in the oil and gas industry and the risks involved in such kind of applications. The topics include an overview of O&G industries, the metallurgy of steels and the application studies for corrosive environments and the action measures.

Course Content:
  • Introduction to Oil and Gas Industry
  • Metallurgy of steels
  • Material selection for O&G applications
  • Corrosion- Introduction
  • Materials Subjected to Corrosive Environments 
  • Case Studies.

Product Design
