Coatings for the Oil & Gas Industry


The unique challenges of coatings for the oil and gas industry is the focus of the next free webinar from JPCL and SSPC.

Protective coatings specialist Kristin Leonard of Bechtel Materials Engineering and Technology Group will present "Protective Coatings Specified for the Upstream and Downstream of the Oil and Gas Industry" from 11 am to noon ET Wednesday, Feb. 17.

Webinar participants will be eligible to receive continuing education credits from SSPC.

Participants may register here free.

What You Will Learn

The upstream and downstream segments of the oil and gas industry present an array of unique challenges. Given the drive to cut capital costs and the need to adhere to strict environmental regulations that are inherent in this industry, the long life of a coating system and effective protection of assets is essential.

This webinar will define several types of anti-corrosion coatings for the oil and gas industry. The coatings presented will have performance properties such as: Intumescent and heat-resistant properties, high levels of abrasion resistance and, the durability to increase component life.
