Safeguarding People, Property and the Environment
through Asset Integrity Management

Greetings! The tentative program for the NACE International Northern Area Western Conference (NAWC) 2014 is shown below. The NAWC will feature two technical tracks with sessions related to corrosion in Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems and Oil Sands Operations and Facilities. These two track areas are very complex and provided many challenges for the corrosion community. Ultimately, all presentation topics collimate into the integrity management of the asset to safeguard people, property and the environment. Over 40 technical presentations have been submitted and segregated into 8 key sessions that include:
