Corrosion management (CM) is a rather new concept and expertise. Its origins go back to early 2000's. The CM concept emerged from the UK's offshore oil and gas industry; from where the author also started his professional career.
Due to this newness and a vast multitude of application benefits, there has been a constant growth in demands for the provision of CM awareness, training, expertise and consultancy year after year.
The author has so far compiled a total of four CM books and this one is the last in the series. It is also the most comprehensive among the four books, with a greater emphasis and focus on CM field implementation.
Therefore, if one intends to implement CM across their asset(s), then this book could provide them with the required advice, instructions and guidelines on proper CM field implementation for both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon industries.
The book covers subjects from how to define the scope of work to report writing and communicating the latest integrity findings.
It is written in a simple and jargon-free language and intended for various disciplines including: corrosion and integrity engineers, inspection engineers, pipeline engineers, process engineers, maintenance engineers and asset integrity managers

Steam system in Utility Plant produces Super High Pressure (SHP), High Pressure (HP), Medium Pressure (MP), and Low Pressure (LP) steam. The header of every steam type has a control valve and a silencer downstream to open in case of high pressure. The MP steam header suddenly spiked up following a malfunction of the high range letdown valve from the HP header to the MP header. The MP header vent control valve opened up to control the header pressure. However, the opening of the vent valve led to severe damage to the internals of the silencer. Fortunately, there was no personnel injury or environmental impact, only equipment damage. The direct and root cause of the failure was identified after silencer was offered for internal inspection. Gross corrosion of silencer internals, and silencer design were the direct root causes of this failure. However, an effective mitigation and resolution was implemented by preventing condensate accumulation and providing a way to clean drain lines and prevent pluggage.
