|In a state which has a large industrial base and many miles of seashore,
it is important that a corrosion center be available to provide the
research and education necessary to solve practical corrosion problems.
The UL Lafayette Corrosion Research Center, established in November 1985, consists of a diversified group of engineers and scientists who are available to provide a multi disciplinary approach to solving corrosion related problems. Since 1985, the center has procured nearly 2 million dollars in sponsored Industrial and Federal research funds. The State Equipment Enhancement Fund has produced $750,000 for procurement of corrosion related equipment. The center has a variety of corrosion related equipment and computers which makes it uniquely qualified to perform corrosion research in the following areas:
The technical expertise developed by members of the Corrosion Center has allowed the development of training programs through the UL Lafayette Petroleum Training Service. This program offers corrosion courses leading to certification as an "Oilfield Corrosion Technologist" and an "Oilfield Corrosion Specialist".
