Why Steel protection is key?
Steel protection is key to oil and gas industry is something heard often from the leaders and thinkers of the industry. Due to corrosion, every year the industry faces a massive loss of revenues and corrosion of steel (like other materials) is inescapable. However, many studies say containing corrosion will curtail the direct costs of corrosion to the industry and economy. This has been a constant challenge for professionals, leaders as well as for governments around the work, as this not only hurts the industry but economy as well. Middle East Corrosion Event (MECOR 2020) wants to create a platform where leaders and professionals can meet, discuss and share innovations, solutions, services, scientific breakthroughs, steel standards, research findings and industry development trends that can help industry control, protect and prevent corrosion, and thus save billions of dollars for the industry.
Since Steel Corrosion Protection stakes high in the industry as each year it affects, to name a few, structural steel, asset integrity, oil and gas and petrochemicals industry and the national economy – one of the main focus of the prominent coating and chemical companies is to protecting steel against corrosion and reduce the loss by dealing with it. According to a study, in Middle East and Africa, 17 per cent of corrosion protection coatings market share (in terms od revenue) was from the oil and gas industry.
Steel Corrosion, in every environmental circumstance, can be controlled, mitigated, or even stopped by robust plans and technology. The Although no metal is insusceptible in all types of environments, but analyzing challenges and scientific breakthrough and new technology can lead to substantial reduction in steel corrosion and to reduce the associated costs related to it.
At the Middle East Corrosion Conference and Exhibition, the leaders aim is to bring expertise and solutions to the table by discussing factors and insights, identifying best practices, and benchmarking global standards.
