Next, John Bogard, Aftermarket Services Engineer at OneSubsea, spoke on the impact of coating breakdown factors on cathodic protection in a subsea environment.

Mark Mateer, Principal Asset Integrity Engineer for Shell Projects & Technology, presented an analysis of spot wall thickness inspection data on API 5L pipe.

Dr. Rojas then spoke on inspection and monitoring technologies for assessing cathodic protection in subsea environments.

A question and answer session followed the presentation.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended the presentation!
