Oil and Gas resources are limited, and modern techniques for oil extraction must provide high production efficiency. The chemistry happening at interfaces play a vital role in both corrosion and enhanced oil recovery. The principles of corrosion and of corrosion protection and prevention will be covered in detail. You will also learn about the principles of enhanced oil recovery, which covers solid-gas interfaces and gas adsorption, thermodynamics of surface interactions and how surface chemistry can be applied to this task. The course is supported by practical classes to deepen your understanding the chemistry of interfaces.
