6th Annual Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament Results
Posted on 7/13/2015

The Tulsa NACE Section raised $10,475.00 at its sixth annual scholarship fund golf tournament on May 7, 2015. Section members and sponsors met at the White Hawk Golf Club in Bixby, OK and teamed up to raise money for eligible college students pursuing science, technology, engineering, math and of course, corrosion careers. Kris-Tech Wire supplied the 64 golfers with a hamburger lunch before the teams began playing. The grand door prize was an Icehole High-Performance Cooler donated by Pipeline Integrity Resources (PIR). The remaining door prizes included caps, shirts, fishing rods and more, and were donated by many generous sponsors. Some sponsors supplied cold drinks to the hard-working golfers as they made their way through the course. Wilko Paint’s Don Holt and his team won first place, with PIR’s Max Moll and team taking second place.

The proceeds from the tournament benefit the Elmer Curry and the Roger Floyd Memorial scholarships (see "Elmer Curry and Roger Floyd Memorial Tulsa Section Scholarship Offering"). The scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors or college students who are children or grandchildren of active members of the NACE Tulsa section. All eligible children and grandchildren are encouraged to seek the scholarships. Herb Jones of MESA served as chairman for this year’s tournament and extended a great big thanks to all who participated and are dedicated to furthering corrosion control.

Tulsa Section applauds three Tulsa Section members
Posted on 5/6/2015

The Tulsa Section applauds three Tulsa Section members who received awards during the NACE International Conference in March in Dallas, TX:

  • Mohsen Achour of ConocoPhillips, Bartlesville, OK received the NACE International Technical Achievement Award for his many contributions to corrosion engineering including the application of corrosion inhibitor technology, corrosion monitoring, corrosion prediction, and modeling.
  • Wayne Frenier of Frenier Chemistry Consultants, Tulsa, OK was awarded the Fellow Honor for his leadership in the research, development, and commercialization of cleaner, safer, and more environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors and formulated well-treating fluids.
  • Professor Siamack Shirazi, University of Tulsa, Tulsa, OK, received a Fellow Honor for his 24 years of research in fluid flow. The results of his work have produced the state-of-the-art techniques used worldwide for the mitigation of erosion corrosion in oilfield applications.

Bartlesville District Science and Engineering Fair
Posted on 4/13/2015

Our Tulsa NACE treasurer, Sonja Richter, recently helped judge the Bartlesville District Science and Engineering Fair.  We are sharing part of a letter sent to Ms. Richter by Sourabh Pansare, Award Chair, on behalf of the Fair:

“I want to thank you and the other members of [NACE] for supporting this year's Bartlesville District Science and Engineering Fair. I also want to thank you for judging this special award at the Fair. Thanks to the great support from many people, we had another successful year.  We had approximately 360 students participating over the course of the two days.

As you know, participation in the science fair is an excellent way to help students develop an understanding of the scientific process along with strengthening their communication skills. Fair sponsors like [NACE] play an important role in the success of our fair.

The winners were:

Junior Division 1st place

 Benjamin South         Bartlesville Mid-High School       “Rusting Metals”

Junior Division 2nd place  Miranda Krebbs    Bartlesville Mid-High School     “Different Water Effects on Crude Oil Emulsion”

CRTS, Inc., Winner of a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year award
Posted on 5/1/2014

CRTS, Inc., a coating robotics company based in Tulsa, OK, won a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year award at the NACE International Conference in San Antonio, TX, in March 2014.  The CRTS Robotic Internal Inspection Machine won an award in the Integrity Assessment category.  The awards recognize “groundbreaking advances in coatings and linings…integrity assessment…and other corrosion prevention and mitigation technologies” according to NACE International’s website.

CRTS’ robotic equipment cleans internal field joints in new pipelines, then coats those joints with corrosion-prevention coating.  To prevent corrosion at the weakest link, the inspection robot then performs several functions (as requested by customer):  It locates coating defects such as holidays; it allows visual inspection with its onboard camera; and it measures dry film thicknesses.  The high-quality video feature can be used to detect faulty welding, display weld bead contours, faulty field-applied couplings, debris, parent coating damage, etc.

The inspection robot can also be configured to work simultaneously with welding and nondestructive testing processes both onshore and offshore. Its untethered design enables it to only enter the pipeline once for internal field joint and full-length inspections.
