Donated pipe saves CNM $60,000

New Mexico Gas Co. recently donated several thousand pounds of pipe to Central New Mexico Community College to boost the college’s welding program.

bright spotThe “ongoing donation of pipe” is expected to initially save the school $60,000 it would have had to spend to acquire the material, according to a news release.

“We’re excited to partner with CNM and recycle our scrap pipe,” gas company president Ryan Shell said in a statement.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to support our community and CNM presented this opportunity to pick up our materials, which will in turn help their students,” he said. “It truly is a win-win for both parties.”

The donated scrap pipes range in size from 2 inches to 24 inches in diameter. The donations will continue as long as the scrap pipe is available, CNM and the company said.

“Before this partnership, we had been purchasing all of the pipe for our advanced students to train on,” Kristen Benedict, dean for CNM’s School of Applied Technologies, said in a statement.

Having the materials donated “will save CNM money while giving our students a valuable opportunity to practice on pipe that is considered an industry standard,” she said.
