Title: Galvanic protection of an offshore loading pipeline in the Baltic Sea

Abstract

A two-component galvanic anode cathodic protection system was designed, procured, and installed on an offshore loading pipeline. An estimate of the initial coating damage (presumed undetected and buried) was factored into the coating efficiency data for design. The contingency factor for current spread of 1.5 times the bracelet spacing was verified during detailed design and confirmed during construction. An initial potential survey of the onshore portion prior to its activation indicated that current propagation provided by the offshore system extended all the way to Kilometer Post 0.00, near the isolating flange at the terminal.
