The present work investigates the effectiveness of external corrosion protection using Close Interval Potential Survey (CIPS) and Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG) on a buried gas pipeline. These surveys were performed on 12” gas pipeline in East Kalimantan. Coating and cathodic protection were the primary corrosion protection on these pipelines. Soil resistivity measurement was conducted every km along the pipeline to obtain the resistivity profile combined with the pH profile. CIPS showed that the Cathodic Protection system protects 79.21 % of the pipeline area. There is no sign of telluric or stray current effect from the result of CIPS. DCVG showed 159 defects that can be divided into three different clusters. There is 6-point coating defects that should be repaired immediately due to the characteristics and category of the defect. The integrated data analysis of CIPS and DCVG showed a correlation which dips pattern on CIPS graph indicating coating defect on DCVG surveyed. Soil resistivity measurement showed that the soil resistivity profile is negligible from KP 0 – 5, while KP 5 – 14 is mildly corrosive. pH measurement showed the acidity level or the soil along the pipeline were neutral. Cathodic protection level could be improved with the increase of cathodic protection current and coating repair along the area with low-level protection.
Key words: Cathodic protection / coating defect / CIPS / DCVG
