world such as carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) corrosion, hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S) corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, pitting, high-temperature corrosion, aging, etc. With the development of deep well fields, high-temperature challenges appear in the production facilities, especially for coatings selection for protection of buried lines. The offshore industry also presented challenges not present onshore. New materials were developed for tougher conditions. The rapid development of the industries demanded a more proactive approach to prevent corrosion beyond the traditional measures. It took leadership in all countries that develop corrosion institutes, corrosion programs, corrosion departments, and corrosion experts to take on the challenges in materials selection and design, inspection practices, training, and development. The quest is still alive. PHMSA Pipeline Safety Forum Presented by: Kevin Garrity, MEARS and Alan Mayberry, PHMSA NACE members play a critical role in protecting the public from potential catastrophic failures of liquid/gas pipelines. Join policymakers (including the PHMSA Associate Administrator), regulators, and industry experts for a discussion on how PHMSA and other agencies address corrosion in pipeline safety. The forum will provide both a regulator and industry perspective on best pipeline safety practices and the latest developments. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27 Music Revolution: The Harmony of Corrosion Control and Mega Projects in the Middle East and Africa Presented by: Gasem Fallatah, NACE International The Middle East and Africa region is exposed to a very harsh environment, such as extremely high temperature, high salinity, and high humidity—factors that greatly affect corrosion and make its control more challenging. These challenges increase the tempo of research studies on corrosion control that apply to different project opportunities for companies. The Middle East and Africa have become a hub for infrastructure development and mega projects that lead to potential investments. This forum aims to present real case studies, the specific solutions developed, and their practical applications. Corrosion experts from the Middle East and Africa will showcase the developments in corrosion research and their innovative ways of controlling it. In addition, industry leaders will present the mega projects in the region that open opportunities for investment. As a little break from the technical information, the forum will showcase the music and cultures of the Middle East and Africa. With the potential for future investment, it is better to know the rhythm of the area on both technical and social aspects. Listen to the music of corrosion control and mega projects in the Middle East and Africa! Forums Thermal and Cold Spray Coatings – Processes, Applications and Challenges Presented by: James Weber, James K. Weber Consulting LLC; Frank Prenger, Grillo-Werke Aktiengesellschaft; and Dave Harvey, TWI This session will cover discussions on thermal and cold spray coatings for mitigation of corrosion and wear with a specific focus on (but not limited to) surface preparation, coating consumable selection, spray method selection, spray parameter development, in-line quality and inspection, testing and qualification, operational experience, cost reduction, maintenance, and repair. The subjects to be covered include the latest research and field experience on thermal spray coatings, materials, processes, and strategies for corrosion control, etc. The group will also discuss conventional and novel thermal and cold spray coating systems used to prevent corrosion and wear in offshore, onshore, oil and gas, subsea, marine, construction, chemical processing, refinery, construction, automotive, power, aerospace, and other industries. Routine Inspection Training for Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs) Presented by Thomas Heller, TTI Environmental, Inc. This forum will enhance the understanding of tank owner responsibilities, proper record keeping procedures, and common areas of concern with AST systems in relation to routine/periodic tank inspections. The information in this forum will benefit EH&S compliance professionals, professional engineers who prepare Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans, facility personnel, and industry consultants. Training relevant to ASTs in any regulatory setting will include industry, energy sector, pharmaceutical, government installation, etc. The contents are relevant to all states and local entities. The information shall apply to routine inspections of the following equipment: ASTs, pressure vessels, and process tanks. The presentation was developed in accordance with and reference to state regulations, inspection standards, recommended practices, fire codes, and best management practices. Inspection standards referenced in the training include: STI SP001, API 653, API 510, and API 570. Topics covered are applicable to complying with the SPCC Regulation (40 CFR 112) and various state AST regulations. A22 OCTOBER 2018 W W W.MATERIALSPERFORMANCE.COM
