Semiannual JIP board meetings took place in April 2010. ICMT JIP Board meeting was
again streamed live over internet to several member companies and few research fellows.

CC JIP board meeting, held April 27-29, 2010, included representatives from all project sponsors,
with representatives of 19 companies in audience and several members via video stream. The meeting featured 16 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. For the first time the poster session of student posters has been
organized for the board members to review. Intermixed with the review of completed research and posters, two guest speakers presented information very
pertinent to the research goals of the Institute:
Richard Woollam, “Consideration of Shear Stress on Corrosion Modeling”
Rob Marriot, Norm Dowling, “Downhole Sulfur Deposition and Sulfur Related Corrosion in Sour Gas Systems – Alberta Sulphur
The TLC JIP Board Meeting, which took place on April 29-30, 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.
The first Board Meeting for the second phase of the Water Wetting Joint Industry Project was held on April 26th, 2010 at the Innovation
Center at Ohio University. The meeting was attended by 7 representatives from 5 sponsoring companies (BP, ConocoPhillips,
ExxonMobil, Petrobras and Total) and the water wetting group members, as well as adjunct professors
and other faculty staff.
Two students, Xuanping Tang and Shanshan Yang, presented their final data and modeling efforts before graduating, but
the biggest emphasis during the board meeting was on wettability in three-phase flow. This is a new area that the project is focusing on and has not
been studied extensively previously, neither within the Institute for Corrosion nor other research groups.
In addition board meetings for few proprietory projects (Alstom, NAP, and EMRE) were held in May 2010.
