RetroSled™ installed on subsea pipeline
6" pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico
RetroClamp™ used to electrically connect the RetroSled™ to the 6” pipeline
Deepwater Corrosion Services was contracted to provide a RetroSled™ anode sled and a RetroClamp™ to provide CP for a 6” subsea pipeline, which was located 6,000 feet from the Renaissance platform MP 76 (shown in photo) in the Gulf of Mexico.
After a midnight mobilization, the pipeline was located and CP readings were taken before installation began.
The RetroSled™ was lowered into position using a crane, and the RetroClamp™ – with cables already attached to the sled – was installed on the pipeline.
CP readings were taken to confirm that the RetroSled™ and pipeline were electrically connected.
