Corrosion & Chemical Management
AIE, as a specialist independent chemical and corrosion management service provider, offers corrosion management systems that comply with Safety, Health and Environmental policies in industries such as Oil and Gas, Power Generation and Nuclear. This helps to increase plant availability as well as reduce leakages and unplanned maintenance.
Within the afore mentioned heavy industries, corrosion management is the part of the overall integrity management system concerned with the development, implementation, review and maintenance of the corrosion policy.
Corrosion Risk Assessments And Planning
AIE’s corrosion and materials consultants provide quantitative and qualitative corrosion risk assessments which address all modes of degradation typically found in heavy industry.
Our specialist chemical and corrosion management consultants assign numerical values to perceived threats in accordance with our risk matrix tables and define individual failure probabilities. We then perform consequence modelling to calculate a derived risk for each threat and barriers/mitigation actions are then assigned.
Corrosion Studies (Risk Based Inspection Projects)
AIE provides comprehensive Risk Based Inspection (RBI) assessments to optimize inspection activities based on risk analysis.
We develop corrosion circuits and utilise market-leading software to define quantified degradation rates of failure which are then used in our detailed RBI assessments. Our corrosion and materials analysis is completed to the highest standards and is integrated with the operational corrosion management system of the facilities.
Corrosion Control And Consultancy
Our specialist corrosion management consultants are highly qualified and have extensive theoretical and practical experience in Oil and Gas, Power Generation and Nuclear industries. AIE provides expert witness services to support legal and insurance claims and we regularly consult on a variety of corrosion and materials related issues.
Chemical Testing And Fitness For Service
AIE has extensive capabilities in performing fitness for service evaluations according to Oil and Gas field conditions of both corrosion inhibitor and flow assurance chemicals. As a leading chemical management service provider, we have working relationships with some of the world’s leading laboratories and our chemical and corrosion management consultants are regarded as some of the most experienced in the Oil and Gas industry.
Laboratory Testing And Coupon Removal / Analysis
AIE works alongside our approved chemical and corrosion service partners in delivering lab analysis and corrosion coupon/probe management services across a range of operating facilities in the Oil and Gas industry. On behalf of our clients, our consultants manage and provide the entire service and independently analyse and report results. This strengthens the overall corrosion management service by ensuring the quality and independence of the data being gathered.
Monitoring And Measuring Performance (KPI / Reporting)
AIE establishes KPIs for each essential corrosion control activity in order to provide a means of recognizing and understanding whether corrosion management performance goals that were established by the duty holder, government or regulatory body are being achieved.
These KPIs set by our corrosion and materials consultants allow continuous monitoring and review of the system as well as allowing corrective actions which would strengthen safety barriers and reduce asset integrity risks.
Materials Engineering Services
AIE’s materials expertise covers the entire spectrum of materials engineering services, from quality control, testing and quality assurance to infrastructure assessments. We provide services over a range of industry sectors such as Oil and Gas, Power Generation and Nuclear.
Our corrosion management consultants perform failure analysis in order to determine where product, process and system improvements are needed and to identify the root cause of component failure. Solutions can then be engineered to avoid similar failures in the future.
