#CORROSION2019 Forums MONDAY, MARCH 25 Corrosion Under Insulation Management: Accelerated Testing & Practical Solutions Presented by: David Hunter, Pond & Co. and Dikran Betzig, PPG At present there is no single ASTM or ISO test method for qualifying coatings for corrosion under insulation (CUI) service that is universally accepted, yet the problem remains. This forum will describe one accelerated testing regimen for qualifying a coating system, as well as real world CUI investigation, with practical solutions. Methods of identification will be discussed, as well as using risk-based methods for dealing with large areas where visual inspection becomes cost prohibitive. An Update of MIC Research and Developments for the Onshore and Offshore Oil and Gas Industry Presented by: Dr. Torben Lund Skovhus, VIA University College; Dr. Lisa Gieg, University of Calgary; Dr. John Wolodko, University of Alberta; and Rick Eckert, DNV GL This forum will present practical examples of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) management in a variety of systems found in the oil and gas industry. Case studies will demonstrate how operators are addressing the threat of MIC as part of a corrosion management system. The latest developments in MIC assessment, mitigation, and monitoring will be presented. Also, the most recent MIC models will be presented and demonstrated. Bridging the Gap with Effective Leadership Full list of speakers will be available on the web site. Businesses have reported a significant gap between the technical talent exiting in the workforce and skill sets of the new talent working to fill those voids. The mass exodus of institutional knowledge and experience retiring, or expecting to retire, has been recognized for years, yet little has been accomplished to effectively stop the loss. This begs the question, what can we do differently to achieve our desired results? There is no single solution to bridging the gap of technical knowledge and experience, but any resolution will certainly require effective leadership from all involved. Leadership is the skill of influencing people to work enthusiastically toward goals identified as being for the common good. Leadership is a journey requiring the application of varying skills along the way. This forum will provide information on leadership lifecycles and tools to help guide you through the leadership journey. Leadership Luncheon Noon - 1 p.m. Following the Bridging the Gap with Effective Leadership Forum, attendees are invited to participate in in the Leadership Luncheon to continue learning how to become an effective leader. This luncheon will feature a presentation from a highly regarded leadership speaker. Cost is $50 to attend. Lunch is included in the price of the ticket. Coating Failures – Common and Uncommon Causes with Various Coating Types on Different Substrates Presented by: Michael O'Brien, Mark 10 Resource Group and Bill Jenkins, International Paint Coating failures continue to cost contractors, facility owners, paint manufacturers, shipbuilders, and fabricators substantial unbudgeted money every year. To find out how to avoid common and uncommon causes of coating failures, plan to attend this informative, practical, and lively presentation. This tutorial is based on hundreds of real-life coating failures investigated by the presenters during their many years in the coating industry. It contains numerous NEW examples, from over 20 different failure investigations involving various coating types on steel, ductile iron, hot-dip galvanizing and concrete substrates. In addition, this year's session will include a NEW section entitled "Principles of Sample Collection for Failure Analysis." Many mistakes made during the sample collection process make it difficult to perform proper laboratory analysis. Attendees will learn how to collect samples properly when coating failures occur to ensure the integrity of the samples and to facilitate proper laboratory analysis. This tutorial is extremely practical and it identifies principles and practices required to avoid the mistakes commonly made by others involved in the coating industry. This year's presentation includes many NEW case histories of failures, not previously shown, as well as a special practical section on the principles of sample collection for failure analysis. TUESDAY, MARCH 26 IMPACT PLUS: Asset Protection through Corrosion Management Presented by: Elaine Bowman, NACE International With IMPACT PLUS's tiered approach, this forum will guide attendees to find the best solution for benchmarking their current corrosion management strategies. Additionally, information will be shared about actual company experiences utilizing the IMPACT PLUS approach to corrosion management improvement. Battle Against Corrosion in Latin America Presented by: Leonard Uller, Surplus; Richardo Estella, BME Andina; and Jorge Canto, Corrosion y Protection The industrial development in Latin America in general has been driven by the oil and gas industry, as well as by mining of minerals, mainly iron ore, aluminum, and copper sulfides that were extracted from metals such as iron, aluminum, and copper. In these industries, corrosion issues at the industrial scale became more apparent, as well as the need to tackle the problem. In the refineries and gas transportation industries, corrosion failures were more frequent, generating the need for failure investigations that were one of the first actions taken. The universities and research institutes also dedicated their attention to the corrosion issues, creating research programs in various countries. The Latin American professional was presented with challenges for which new knowledge was needed. In general, NACE was the source of this knowledge through many of the annual events and papers presented. Problems identified were similar as in other areas in the Please note that the dates given for these forums are tentative. The lengths of some forums may be shortened.
