Semiannual JIP board meetings took place in October and November 2009. ICMT JIP
Board meeting was for the first time streamed live over internet to several member companies and few research fellows.
CC JIP board meeting, held October 20-22, included representatives from all project sponsors, either present or via video stream
The meeting featured 20 student and staff presentations which covered research in sweet systems, CO2 sequestration, Factors in Non-Uniform
/ Localized Corrosion , Corrosion Measurement, Corrosion Inhibition, research in sour systems, and MULTICORP software development. Intermixed with
the review of completed research, four guest speakers presented information very pertinent to the research goals of the Institute:
Prof. Vesna B. Miskovic-Stankovic, Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, University of Belgrade, “Corrosion studies
on environmentally friendly protective coatings”
Bill Carey, Los Alamos National Lab, “Wellbore Environments during CO2 Sequestration and Storage”
Dr. Rudy Hausler, Corro-Consulta, “Reminiscences of 40 Years' work with Corrosion inhibitors”
Dr. Günter Schmitt, IFINKOR-Institute for Maintenance and Corrosion Protection Technologies Iserlohn, Germany,
“Elemental Sulfur - One of the Most Corrosive Agents for Steels and CRAs”
The TLC JIP Board Meeting, which took place on October 19, discussed current state of the research work presented by the students
and covered issues related with droplet transport, oil/water co-condensation and localized corrosion.
This was the final board meeting for the Water Wetting Joint Industry Project (Water Wetting JIP). It took place on October 22nd
to 23rd at the Corrosion Center and was attended by 12 representatives from 7 companies. The second phase of the Water Wetting JIP will continue
the work that has been done in the last three years with the support of a consortium of companies, some who have sponsored the project previously
and others that are new to the project. The second phase of the project will focus on further work on water wetting in 3 phase flow and the effect
of oil chemistry on wettability and CO2 corrosion.
In addition board meetings for few proprietory projects (Alstom, NAP, and EMRE) were held in early November.
