The global corrosion industry’s leading authority for corrosion control solutions, NACE International, has appointed Element Materials Technology’s Eva Coronado as Vice Chair of Task Group 085, which produces the NACE TM0177 Standard for sulfide stress corrosion cracking used in the oil and gas industry.
Eva will play a vital role in revising the TM0177 Standard, “Laboratory Testing of Metals for Resistance to Sulfide Stress Cracking and Stress Corrosion Cracking in H2S Environments”. The standard is currently under review and its latest version scheduled for publication in 2015.
Rod Martin, Element’s Executive Vice President, Oil and Gas, comments: “The appointment of Eva to such an influential industry committee recognises her important work at Element over the last seven years in corrosion and sour service testing for clients in production, qualification and R&D. It also demonstrates the importance of her leadership role within the Corrosion laboratory at Element’s recently opened flagship facility in Houston. For Element to become the best and most trusted testing partner for our clients, it is clear that our Engaged Experts must collaborate with other industry leaders in setting the standards and accreditations for the TIC industry and contributing to the work of its foremost organisations.”
Element Houston provides unparalleled capabilities including corrosion testing, fracture mechanics and engineering critical assessment and NDT services across a broad range of metal alloys, thermoplastics, composites and elastomers.
The news follows the recent announcement of a partnership between Element and NACE to host leading experts at its next biennial Oilfield Engineering with Polymers global conference scheduled for 2016.
