Carlos Palacios presented the keynote address. Latin American Area CorrTrin 2019—a New Landmark Corrosion Event T he first-ever corrosion seminar was held in Trinidad and Tobago on April 26, 2019. NACE International and the NACE Trinidad and Tobago Sec- tion held CorrTrin at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Port of Spain, which attracted op- erators, service providers, and profession- als from the local community, neighboring islands, as well as the United States, Canada, and Central America. The technical content included 15 presentations and a keynote address by Carlos Palacios on "Experiences in Management of Internal Corrosion for Upstream Oil and Gas Facilities." This pro- gram kept the attention of over 160 attend- ees that packed the Regency Ballroom of the hotel. Content covered various topics, such as integrity management in aging pipe- lines, flow modeling in unpiggable off- shore multiphase flowlines, degradation of reinforced concrete structures, the impact of corrosion on offshore platform struc- tures and equipment, operation and main- tenance of cathodic protection systems, corrosion management through data inte- gration and assessment, coating solutions for offshore structures, and many others. The one-day event was also supported by local and international sponsors. The National Gas Co. of Trinidad and Tobago was one of the key Platinum Sponsors, as well as PPG and Sherwin-Williams. A total of 21 companies sponsored CorrTrin 2019, including the three Platinum, four Gold, nine Silver, and five Bronze. They provided the opportunity for attendees to exchange information on their services, products, and solutions in the corrosion control industry. The local community welcomed this event with great participation and also with very positive reviews afterward. The people from Corrosion & Environmental Services, Ltd. (CESL) commented in their post: "CESL was pleased to collaborate with our dear friends at Holdtight Solu- tions, Inc., for the NACE International CorrTrin 2019 Conference…This event was the first for NACE Trinidad and the com- mittee put forward a show that was unpar- alleled. Meeting with peers, suppliers, clients, and professionals in the corrosion industry was certainly an experience of a lifetime. We wish NACE Trinidad all suc- cesses in the future and we pledge our unwavering support to this event." (—Romer O. Gil) NACE International Search volunteer opportunities. Join a community.
