Topsides 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 topsides issues in the areas of:

  • Topsides Materials Selection including Protective Coatings, Cathodic Protection Systems, Corrosion Monitoring, and Erosion Monitoring Systems

  • Inspection and Auditing During Fabrication And Vendor Qualification Including Welding, Coating, Anode Chemistry, Positive Material Identification

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

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

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

  • 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.

  • Coatings and Cathodic Protection

  • Integrity Assurance
