Dick Williamson Wins Energy Industry Lifetime Achievement Award

T.D. Williamson (TDW) Chairman Emeritus Richard B. “Dick” Williamson received the International Pipeline Conference Lifetime Achievement Award Sept. 30 during the International Pipeline Expo, held virtually from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The IPC Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a “person or group that has demonstrated through their work and actions that the safety and economy of pipeline systems has been advanced.”

The conference credited Williamson with expanding the international presence of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), including co-founding its International Offshore Pipeline Forum (IOPL), helping form and serving as vice president of ASME’s International Petroleum Technology Institute and working to develop the first-ever ASME-sponsored India Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference.

Williamson has also been actively involved with the American Petroleum Institute (API), National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and Gas Appliance Manufacturing Association (GAMA). He helped the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) frame the core elements of the U.S. in-line inspection (ILI) system, program and training standards. As a board member of the American Gas Foundation (AGF), Williamson worked with industry leaders and state and federal pipeline safety regulators to establish the Distribution Integrity Management Program (DIMP) pipeline standard. He also has supported engineering professional and career development programs throughout his career.
