Key performance indicators are used to track the efficiency of the prevailing corrosion risk management strategy, namely, the integration of corrosion, process monitoring, inspection, mitigation, environmental control, and materials management. In an earlier paper1, a methodology was outlined for the use of a single key performance indicator, namel...

... In this paper, an initial attempt is made to answer this question. The paper relates the findings of 16S rRNA characterization of bacteria to the activities of the ICMS program pertaining to microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) in oilfield water handling systems 5 According to NACE RP0775-2005 1 corrosion severity classification is in terms of corrosion rates in mils per year (1 mil = 0.001 in) or mm/y as illustrated in Table 1. On the other hand, certain morphology of corrosion pits is sometimes used to be a sign of MIC. ...

One of the major challenges that face our national oil company is microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). In spite of biocide treatment in the facilities, the serial dilution results continue to confirm a high proliferation of sessile and planktonic bacteria in all the water handling systems. Planktonic and sessile samples from different gathering centers are now being analyzed for their molecular identities based on 16S rRNA characterization employing a molecular microbiological method (MMM) of quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) for enumeration of specific microorganisms. The results so far demonstrate the presence of ten principal groups of bacteria in brackish, effluent and sea water systems. These bacterial groups can be broadly classified as aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. This paper focuses on the linkage between the findings of 16S rRNA characterization with the field analyses of the diverse microbial population based on Serial Dilution Test Method outlined in NACE TM0194-2004. The key issues relate to the linkage of sulfate reducing bacteria, acid producing bacteria, general aerobic, and general anaerobic bacteria with specific microorganisms. The ultimate goal is the mitigation of MIC damage in the operating facilities by targeting specific microorganisms, identified by 16S rRNA, through a judicious selection of treatment chemicals.
... periods.  KPI are coordinated with measurements of performance in relation to the strategic objectives of the company. Indicators can be different depending on the company and are usually defined by the shareholders of the company. Changes in the value of the KPI is a measure of the degree of realization of the strategic objectives of the company. [16] Identifying and measuring the effectiveness of using relevant indicators is essential in organizations because it allows you to assess whether the company is headed in the right or wrong direction. This is typical of managerial control tool used to evaluate current activities to implement the strategy. TETA BI allows further defining th ...

Managers as decision-makers present in different sectors should be supported in efficient and more and more sophisticated way. There are huge number of software tools developed for such users starting from simple registering data from business area – typical for operational level of management – up to intelligent techniques with delivering knowledge -for tactical and strategic levels of management. There is a big challenge for software developers to create intelligent management dashboards allowing to support different decisions. In more advanced solutions there is even an option for selection of intelligent techniques useful for managers in particular decision-making phase in order to deliver valid knowledge-base. Such a tool (called Intelligent Dashboard for SME Managers – InKOM) is prepared in the Business Intelligent framework of Teta products. The aim of the paper is to present solutions assumed for InKOM concerning on management of stored knowledge bases offering for business managers. The paper is managed as follows. After short introduction concerning research context the discussed supporting managers via information systems the InKOM platform is presented. In the crucial part of paper a process of knowledge transformation and validation is demonstrated. We'll focus on potential and real ways of knowledge-bases acquiring, storing and validation. It allows for formulation conclusions interesting from knowledge engineering point of view.

Consider a crude oil handling system, with various degrees of water separation/accumulation, which has been experiencing increased corrosion over a period of time. If the trend of increasing corrosion rate versus time parallels the corresponding trend of water separation/accumulation as well as bacteria population density over that same period of time, the pragmatic assumption is to ascribe the source of increased corrosion not only to water separation/accumulation but also to the increased bacteria population density. This paper investigates the role of water separation/accumulation and bacteria population density on general/pitting corrosion and asset integrity in wet and dry crude handling systems. The study is intended to offer a viable corrosion control metric for microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) such that the population of sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB), general aerobic bacteria (GAB), and general anaerobic bacteria (GAnB) in an operating environment can be kept below a target envelop to preserve asset integrity.
