The article focuses on the benefit of cathodic protection current measurement (CPCM) in the U.S. The CPCM is intended for the inspection of pipelines. This method has been perceived to be reliable, cost-efficient and time saving. The method is an alternative to prevent the external corrosion of pipelines.
