Prolonging the lives of buried crude-oil and natural-gas pipelines by cathodic protection

By M. T. Lilly, S. C. Ihekwoaba, S. O. T. Ogaji and S. D. Probert


In Nigeria, a major problem is the corrosion of the external surfaces of such pipelines, which are not usually adequately safeguarded during construction. A cathodic protection system should be applied to the pipeline before this period
