Corrosion, Material and Integrity Expert

I’m a Corrosion, Material and Integrity Expert. I’m an engineering doctorate (Industrial Corrosion) from India’s premier technical institute ‘Indian Institute of Technology’ [IIT], and bear 29 years of professional experience mainly in large EPC Projects and Operating Facilities of oil & gas, refinery, petrochemical & chemical industry [including 6 years in R&D lab for industry’s support in metallurgy/corrosion field]. I’ve worked with world’s most prestigious companies including Reliance Industries Ltd or RIL (India), Saudi Arabian Basic Industries Corp. or SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Fluor Corp. (India), Worley Parsons (UAE), MODEC Offshore (Singapore), etc. Important projects include: KGD6/MA/R-Series/Satellite/MJ offshore fields dev. with CBM (RIL, India); Barossa (Conoco Philips, Australia) & Bacalhau (Equinor, Brazil) offshore field dev. FPSO, Al-Zour & CFP refinery (KNPC, Kuwait), Green Diesel refinery (ADNOC, UAE), Gasoil Pipeline (KOC, Kuwait), Corrosion Risk Study for offshore Belbazem Block dev. (ADNOC, UAE), Corrosion Study for large Chemical Plants (QChem, Qatar). Operating facilities are SABIC (KSA), Gharda Chemicals (India), RIL (India) [need based]. I’m well aware of intl. codes, standards and practices (NACE, ISO, API, DNV, Shell DEP, Norsok, ASME, ASTM, JIS, Gulf, etc.); softwares & tools (ECE, Predict, Norsok, BP, Shell, Models, Plots, Nomograms); methods, techniques and technol.; etc. used in industry and discipline R&D. During my career, I’ve attended over 40 training programs as well as delivered (~20) in my discipline. Also, I’ve published about 45 papers in refereed intl. journals & conferences, etc., e.g., Corrosion-NACE (USA), Corrosion Science (UK), British Corrosion J., Werkstoffe und Korrosion (Germany), Materials & Techniques (France), Mechanics & Industry (France), Anti-Corr. Methods & Mater. (UK), NACE Conf., etc. Also, reviewed many intl. papers, and chaired intl. conf., symp. & similar events. My contribution got recognition through distinguished awards & appreciations by NACE & other organizations. Fields of Competence & Services For EPC projects & Operating Plant/Facility: • Corrosion assessment & Material selection (with preparation of report & MSDs) • Corrosion & Material engineering (design, guideline, specs., procedures, etc.) • Corrosion- control & prevention, monitoring & mitigation and management support • Corrosion diagnosis & troubleshooting • Failure investigation & root cause analysis • Leading support during implementation of risk (RBI) and Integrity (Asset Integrity) programs • Effectiveness assessment of corrosion mitigation & monitoring programs & remedial advice • Coating & Paint – Selection, spec. and evaluation • Corrosion Inhibitor – Selection & lab qualification • CP System- Selection, design review, performance (monitoring report) review & remedial advice • Review of engineering & vendor dwng, data sheet, specs., report, etc. & technical resolutions • Conduct lab & field
