                           Materials Staff. In 1982-1984, Ned went to Pascagoula, Mississippi as that refinery’s
first materials engineer, followed by an assignment as the Richmond refinery materials engineer. Among other
duties, he served as the Materials Laboratory supervisor and Corrosion/Refining group team leader. Currently,
Ned’s responsibilities involve advanced materials and corrosion research and development, and integrating
Upstream and Downstream materials/corrosion efforts. He was appointed a Chevron Fellow by the Chevron

    Workshop Title: Total Integrity Management – Linking Corrosion and Erosion-
    Corrosion Research to Industry’s Needs


    Many of the major integrity management issues are derived from degradation associated with corrosion and
    erosion-corrosion. Particularly as sand production increases, erosion-corrosion imposes some very important
    integrity issues. Whereas corrosion prediction methodologies are well established for the oil and gas sector,
    there are no such reliable methodologies for predicting lifetime in erosion-corrosion environments. The workshop
    will focus on integrating monitoring methodologies to assess erosion, corrosion and erosion-corrosion damage,
    current state of erosion-corrosion prediction and using chemicals for mitigation of pipeline corrosion and erosion-
