Tech Talk Tuesday: Session 17 – The Importance of Field Verification and Cathodic Protection Data

As pipeline infrastructure ages, it is often the case that many of these assets are operating well beyond their original design philosophy, accordingly, managing integrity issues has never been more challenging. Therefore, it is critical that when operational data is collected in the field, the quality and accuracy is of the highest possible standard, as integrity-based operational decisions are often derived from the assessment of field data.

While in-line inspection (ILI) data is often considered the most important data set when assessing pipeline infrastructure, the importance of high-quality cathodic protection, coating, and field verification data supports ILI in numerous ways by providing confidence in the inspection technology and compelling information about the WHY factor when it comes to understanding root causes. In addition, in cases where ILI is not achievable, the only aspects under which integrity can be managed is the field data collected.
