This paper presents several case histories where ductile iron pipeline sections have been investigated to ascertain the corrosioncontrol benefits of polyethylene encasement. Investigative procedures, included cell-to-cell potential surveys, side-drain technique measurements, in-situ and laboratory soil tests, pipe-to-soil potential measurements and excavation inspections.
It has been important for the oil industry to establish reliable test method(s) for qualification and safe utilization of subsea pipelines and components made from stainless steels. This paper describes a method that has been developed through a JIP executed with support from leading oil companies and meterial suppliers.p
This paper contains a review of commonly used practices and presents a generalized technique for the calculation of earth potentials for the determination of remoteness of impressed current anode ground beds. The intent is to facilitate proper design and evaluation of anode ground beds of impressed current cathodic protection system for cross-country pipelines.
