Refinery Corrosion Management

Loss due to corrosion effect in India is estimated at about Rs. 36,000 crore per annum. Stating this while inaugurating the seminar on ‘State-of-Art Technologies for Refinery Corrosion Management’ organized by PetroFed with Honeywell as knowledge partner on January 08, 2010 at New Delhi, Mr. C. S. Das, Executive Director (M&I), IndianOil added that developed nations around the globe confirmed that corrosion is responsible for losses amounting to approximately 3-4% of GNP. It has been estimated, Mr. Das said, that about 15 % of the total corrosion loss could be avoided if currently available corrosion control techniques are effectively applied.

Welcoming the participants earlier, Mr. S. L. Das, Director (BD & C), PetroFed said that Indian refiners and the oil and gas industry can ill afford productivity, efficiency and profitability, erosion due to corrosion.

The half-day seminar took advantage of the presence in India of Mr. Sridhar Srinivasan, Senior Engineering Manager, Advanced Solutions – Americas, Honewell International, who is a global corrosion consultant and modeling expert and the programme leader for the joint Industry Projects for Honeywell and responsible for development of cutting edge tools and technologies to solve industry problems. Presentations were also made by Mr. Amish Gandhi, Corrosion Solution Specialist Asia Pacific, Honeywell Automation and              Mr. Amitabh Chaturvedi, Development Leader, Honeywell International. The industry perspective on corrosion in refineries was presented by Mr. S. Ghatak Choudhary, Chief Inspection Manager, IndianOil.
