When it comes to protecting the public from liquid/gas pipeline failures—particularly those of a potentially catastrophic nature—NACE members play a vital role. To that end,CORROSION 2019 hosted a forum in which industry experts, including the associate administrator of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), addressed the issue of corrosion in pipeline safety.
NACE Foundation’s 24th annual NACE Race 5K completed on Sunday, March 24th, raising funds for STEM disciplines. Medals were awarded to the top three winners in the men’s and women’s divisions.
