Trends in Oil and Gas Corrosion Research and Technologies: Production and Transmission delivers the most up-to-date and highly multidisciplinary reference available to identify emerging developments, fundamental mechanisms and the technologies necessary in one unified source.

Starting with a brief explanation on corrosion management that also addresses today’s most challenging issues for oil and gas production and transmission operations, the book dives into the latest advances in microbiology-influenced corrosion and other corrosion threats, such as stress corrosion cracking and hydrogen damage just to name a few. In addition, it covers testing and monitoring techniques, such as molecular microbiology and online monitoring for surface and subsurface facilities, mitigation tools, including coatings, nano-packaged biocides, modeling and prediction, cathodic protection and new steels and non-metallics.

Rounding out with an extensive glossary and list of abbreviations, the book equips upstream and midstream corrosion professionals in the oil and gas industry with the most advanced collection of topics and solutions to responsibly help solve today’s oil and gas corrosion challenges.

About the Editors

A. M. Sherik Editor

Abdelmounam Sherik is a Corrosion Science Consultant focusing on corrosion management in crude and gas handling and transmission facilities. In his current position, Dr. Sherik established and advanced pipelines corrosion research in areas such as black powder, external corrosion, modeling and prediction of hydrogen induced cracking, and sulfur solubility and deposition in gas lines. He is regularly invited as a keynote speaker on black powder in international conferences and workshops. Prior to joining Saudi Aramco, he was a Senior Metallurgical Engineer with Arcelor Mittal Dofasco in Canada and a Research Scientist with the National Research Council of Canada. Abdelmounam is active in many organizations such as NACE, SPE and ASME and has served on technical committees and chairperson in several international conferences. He also owns seven patents, has authored a chapter on black powder, and has over eighty journal and conference publications. Abdelmounam earned his PhD and MSc in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, both from Queen's University in Canada.
