Subsea Materials, Corrosion & Integrity Engineering

The Corrosion, Materials and Integrity Team for oil and gas developments and water and gas injection systems forms one of GATE’s core oil and gas engineering services. The Corrosion, Materials and Integrity Team is involved at all stages of project development (Concept to Operations) and offers a significant interface with chemical systems engineering, flow assurance, operations, installation, and surveillance teams.

The GATE Corrosion, Materials and Integrity Team team develops whole-life cost solutions to corrosion and materials issues subsea in the areas of:

  • Subsea Materials Selection and Qualification - Material selection recommendations on a project are supported and supplemented by comprehensive corrosion, erosion, and souring reviews using various software packages.

  • Erosion/Corrosion Risk Assessment and Modeling Scaling Studies (Formation Risk, Removal and Mitigation Strategies)

  • Failure Analysis

  • Protective Coatings and Cathodic Protection System Design Monitoring and Inspection Strategies During Field Design

  • Pigging Solutions for Deepwater Production Flowlines and Risers Peer Review of System-Wide Materials Selections

  • Linking Material Selection, Selection of Coatings and Field Joints Studies

  • Risk-Based Assessment and Inspection Planning Troubleshooting Corrosion Problems on Operating Facilities

  • Integrity Assurance

  • Corrosion engineering management also extends to the troubleshooting of corrosion problems on operating facilities. This includes the management and mitigation of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) modeling and failure mechanisms.
