Webinar: Reliably Diagnosing the Threat of Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)

In this webinar DNV’s microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) experts demonstrate the analytical methods and techniques used to collect data for analysis in diagnosing MIC and distinguish the involvement of abiotic mechanisms.

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a significant problem in oil and gas, chemical processing, marine, aviation, and other industries. This global problem reduces asset integrity and drives up mitigation costs. MIC often occurs where abiotic corrosion mechanisms are also possible. Accurate diagnosis of MIC is vital for making effective and cost-efficient mitigation decisions. 

Since microorganisms are present nearly everywhere but MIC is not, this webinar discusses how to use multiple lines of evidence to diagnose MIC. Our experts will cover the microbiological, chemical, and physical environments and the effects of asset design and operation that can influence MIC. We will demonstrate the analytical methods and techniques used to collect data and show you how to integrate the evidence for the diagnosis of MIC. Plus, we will also discuss how to distinguish the involvement of abiotic mechanisms. Early detection requires a reliable diagnosis to ensure the most effective mitigation and performance monitoring methods can be implemented.
