Metallurgy and Corrosion Control in Oil and Gas Production
This book is intended for engineers and related professionals in the oil and gas production industries. It is intended for use by personnel with limited backgrounds in chemistry, metallurgy, and corrosion and will give them a general understanding of how and why corrosion occurs and the practical approaches to how the effects of corrosion can be mitigated. It is also an asset to the entry-level corrosion control professional who may have a theoretical background in metallurgy, chemistry, or a related field, but who needs to understand the practical limitations of large-scale industrial operations associated with oil and gas production. While the may use by technicians and others with limited formal technical training, it will be written on a level intended for use by engineers having had some exposure to college-level chemistry and some familiarity with materials and engineering design.

The author's objectives, stated in the preface, are quite clear and, looking through the available text, it is apparent that they have been more than met. It is very difficult to blend the academic with the practical but a sound balance has been achieved in this instance. The publication is an ideal starting point for undergraduates moving on to a postgraduate specialism in Corrosion Engineering such as the MSc Corrosion Control Engineering course at the University of Manchester, UK.
