Dr Danny Burkle part of winning ICorr YEP team

LBBC Baskerville’s, Dr Danny Burkle, was part of 2018’s winning team from the year long ICorr Young Engineer Programme.

The programme run by the Insitute of Corrosion is a mentored technical competency framework program consistent with ICorr professional standards in support of preparing graduates entry into the industry with a broad range of topics to include; materials, cathodic protection, welding, coating, fire protection, presentation skills.

L-R Danny Burkle, Caroline Earl, Oliver Smith and Jessica Easton

The 2018 YEP culminated in the teams presenting their findings on the Case Study at Imperial College on Thursday 8th November. This was 12 months of work for the delegates who have worked through modules that span the breadth and depth of our industry. It was a truly fantastic evening with 3 excellent presentations from the teams, Team Boran, Team Googan and winning Team Doggett. Team Doggett comprised of Dr Danny Burkle from LBBC Baskerville, Dr Caroline Earl from Fluor Corporation, Oliver Smith and Jessica Easton from AkzoNobel.

Bill Hedges of BP, when making his award speech, said “its been very hard to select a winner as they were all so good. However there has to be a winning team and that is Team Doggett.”

The winning team travelled to the USA in April to attend the NACE Corrosion 2019 Conference in Nashville where a whole programme was arranged. The teams will also present their conference learning in the 2019 winter lecture series at ICorr London Branch.

LBBC Baskerville – Corrosion testing made easy

Dr Danny Burkle to speak at University of Leeds, Oilfield Corrosion Science and Engineering event

LBBC Baskerville’s, Dr Danny Burkle will be presenting on ‘Addressing limitations of laboratory based techniques through adapted systems’ as part of the University of Leeds 2-day short course on ‘Oilfield Corrosion Science and Engineering’ on Wednesday 22nd May 2019.

The course run by the University of Leeds runs on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd May at University of Leeds, UK.

 

How will I benefit?

This course will provide an overview of the most pertinent corrosion threats to production and processing facilities within the oil and gas industry. You will benefit from academic and industrial presentations, demonstrations, theory sessions and interactive sessions, allowing you to better engage with experts when needed.

At the end, you will be able to identify the various forms of corrosion damage and the best corresponding control, monitoring and mitigating techniques.

 

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for you if you are:

  • Oil and gas operators, managers of operations, engineering and maintenance functions or asset integrity engineers.
  • Engineers and scientists working in the oilfield industry, whether involved in downhole systems, above-ground storage tanks or production pipelines.
  • Design and maintenance engineers or technical staff involved in both offshore and onshore oil and gas activities.
  • Scientists or chemical engineers /suppliers who would value a deeper understanding of how corrosion science and theory can be applied to better understand and solve real industrial corrosion problems.
  • Engineers or designers involved in the supply of metals and alloys or corrosion inhibitors for oilfield corrosion environments.

LBBC Baskerville showcases innovation in Conservative Party Chairman visit

As part of a visit to LBBC Group the Conservative Party Chairman, Rt Hon Brandon Lewis MP visited LBBC Baskerville hearing from Dr Danny Burkle, Product Development Engineer, about the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with The Institute of Functional Surfaces (iFS) at the University of Leeds.

The university are leading the field in translating the needs of corrosion testing in the oil & gas industry into sensible and realistic testing programmes. This partnership is supporting LBBC Baskerville through the design and development of a new autoclave product range for corrosion testing that meets the needs of the industry. Rt Hon Brandon Lewis was particularly interested to hear how Dr Burkle, who grew up in his constituency, has gone through higher education at University of Leeds and is now part of this innovative project at LBBC Baskerville.

LBBC Baskerville visiting Eurocorr 2018

LBBC Baskerville visiting the Eurocorr 2018 conference in Krakow, Poland. Managing Director, Howard Pickard and Dr Danny Burkle, Product Development Engineer are at the conference that runs from Sunday 9th to Thursday 13th September 2018. They have a special interest in the presentations on corrosion research that involve pressure and ensure their autoclave product range supports the latest developments.

The European Corrosion Congress – EUROCORR, the EFC’s annual conference, is the flagship event of the European corrosion calendar. Attracting upwards of six hundred delegates, it is held every year in September in a different European country. EUROCORR is recognised for its high technical standards in the presentations.

LBBC Baskerville’s Dr Danny Burkle presenting at Eurocorr 2017

LBBC Baskerville’s, Product Development/Research Engineer, Dr Danny Burkle has presented his PhD research findings in conjunction with Richard Barker and Anne Neville from University of Leeds and Rehan De Motte from IFP Energies nouvelle in France at the Eurocorr 2017 conference in Prague, Czech Republic. The presentation was on Monday 4th covering ‘Investigation into the kinetics and composition of the protective layer formed during ‘pseudo passivation’ of carbon steel: An in situ and ex situ approach’.

The European Corrosion Congress 2017, 20th International Corrosion Congress & Process Safety Congress 2017 is being held in Prague, Czech Republic and runs from 3rd to 7th September 2017.

The annual conference of the European Federation of Corrosion, EUROCORR, is a flagship event in the field of European corrosion science. Uniquely in 2017, it is co-organised by the International Corrosion Council and Center for Chemical Process Safety becoming thus the largest scientific corrosion event ever held in Europe.

The Congress will cover all aspects of corrosion science and engineering and material protection with world-wide reach. Main topics include the advances in corrosion prevention, corrosion monitoring, corrosion resistant materials, surface treatment and coatings, inspection and non-destructive testing, electrochemical methods, analytical techniques and microscopy, corrosion inhibitors and others.

With expected attendance of 1500 delegates, the Congress will be a unique networking opportunity for scientists, academics, students and representatives of research institutions and industry in a vibrant professional setting and atmosphere. The scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures by world-renowned corrosion specialists, over 20 pointed keynote lectures and about 800 oral presentations. Fifteen parallel sessions on a variety of topics will offer corrosionists from all over the world the opportunity to meet and present their research.
