NACE 06106 Application of Learnings from the Assessment of Cathodic Protection and Coatings on a Recovered Marine Pipeline End Termination

There is limited data on the performance of coatings, materials and cathodic protection systems installed subsea. Most systems remain submerged for their useful life and are often abandoned on the seabed. The recovery of the hardware provided an opportunity to autopsy the hardware for the purposes of validating cathodic protection designs and coating systems; specifically coating performance, anode consumption, and internal wall thickness allowances.
