Former Ohio Senator George Voinovich visits ICMT

 

On October 7, 2015 former Ohio Senator George Voinovich visited ICMT. Senator Voinovich was introduced to the students and staff, while touring the Institute’s $20million facility, which is the largest research facility of its kind in the world dedicated to solving corrosion challenges in the oil and gas industry. Institute Director Srdjan Nesic informed the Senator that initial federal investment (NSF IUCRC grant) helped kick off its industry partnership to the point where it is now fully funded by leading companies from across the globe. He stated that Senator Voinovich’s visit is yet another way to raise awareness of what can be done at the Institute and asked the Senator to spread the word about how Institute can help with local and regional development.



Dr. Nesic presents a plenary lecture at the EUROCORR 2015 conference in Graz, Austria

Dr. Nesic presented as one of the four plenary lecturers, at the largest corrosion conference held in Europe, EUROCORR 2015. He presented a paper titled “Recent Advances in Modeling of Corrosion of Mild Steel in CO2 and H2S Aqueous”. The conference’s main goal was to foster knowledge transfer and exchange of experiences amongst attendees with academic and industrial background, as well as to assert the critical role of corrosion science, technology and engineering in extending the lifecycle of materials in different fields of application. Dr. Nesic says that the conference was an exceptional place for networking in order to secure more research funding for the ICMT.




Visiting Scientists- Dr. Bert Pots, Dr. Bernard Tribollet and Stephen Smith

This fall ICMT hosted a number of leading scientists. They have shared their extensive knowledge with the ICMT students and staff, covering different aspects of corrosion through a series of lectures and advising sessions.

Dr. Bert Pots visited ICMT for the fourth year in a row and stayed in from September 15 – November 15, 2015. As a Senior Research Fellow at the ICMT, Dr. Pots was again engaged in an advisory role with the ICMT students and staff. Dr. Pots is an internationally recognized materials and corrosion expert. Currently he is a Director of Bert Pots Corrosion Consultancy, providing services for Shell operating units in the UK and The Netherlands, as well as BP Exploration Operating Company. [ Read More ]
Bernard Tribollet visited the ICMT for the second year. He held a series of lectures related to application of electrochemical methods, with a focus on EIS. He also consulted with the ICMT staff and had individual advising sessions with the students. Dr.Tribollet is a Director of Research Emeritus at the “Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique” (CNRS) in the “Laboratoire Interfaces et Systèmes Electrochimiques” (LISE) at Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris.

Stephen Smith – Professor Smith, held a week-long seminar in October 2015 covering the Basics of Petroleum Engineering. Professor Smith, a NACE Fellow, has worked for ExxonMobil for many years. Since retiring he has been a consultant to several major oil and gas production companies, as well as an advisor to graduate students on research work associated with corrosion mechanisms.

ICMT is Academic Leader for Top of the Line Corrosion


Dr. Marc Singer and Dr. Zineb Belarbi traveled to Jakarta, Indonesia on July 27-29th to attend the 4th International Top of the Line Corrosion Conference organized by NACE International. Dr. Singer delivered a keynote lecture and chaired the technical committee together with Dr. Sandra Hernandez and Dr. Khlefa Esaklul. Dr. Belabi gave a talk related to volatile inhibition.

Altogether, five papers featuring research work done at the ICMT were presented:
  • "Study of the Localized Nature of Top of the Line Corrosion", Marc Singer*
  • "Effect of Monoethylene Glycol on Sweet Top of the Line Corrosion", Shaoqiang Guo, Fernando Farelas, Srdjan Nesic, Marc Singer*
  • "Localized Top of the Line Corrosion in Marginally Sour Environments", Najmiddin Yaakob*, Fernando Farelas, David Young, Marc Singer, Srdjan Nesic
  • "Methodology for Comparing Model predictions with Field Data – Special Case of Top of Line Corrosion", Sandra Hernandez*, Ussama Kaewpradap, Marc Singer
  • "Inhibition Mechanisms for CO2 Corrosion Mitigation by Amines at the Top-of-the-line", Zineb Belarbi*, Fernando Farelas, Marc Singer, Srdjan Nesic

New contacts were also established with local representatives.




Summer 2014 Thesis Defense

Three people from the ICMT have recently presented and successfully defended their thesis, they are:

  • Thu Tran (PhD) thesis is entitled "Corrosion Mechanisms of Mild Steel in Weak Acids".
  • Kok-Eng Kee (PhD) thesis is entitled "A study of flow patterns and surface wetting in gas-oil-water flow".
  • Yougui Zheng (PhD) thesis is entitled "Electrochemical Mechanism and Model of H2S Corrosion of Carbon Steel".

These are the most recent graduates of the ICMT, click here to view all Alumni.




Multicorp 5.2 Released

The latest version of Multicorp 5.2 has been released and is available for download. This release includes a number of improvements and upgrades which vastly expand the user interface in terms of fluidity, clarity, and robustness as well as including the ability to run parametric and line model simulations. This software was developed by the TLC-JIP, WW-JIP, and CC-JIP projects. It includes different modules varying by project. These modules are only available to members who are directly part of the corresponding project. ICMT members are welcome to share their comments on the CC-JIP Discussion Forum. New versions of MULTICORP will be released as major updates are implemented.
