ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role of corrosion protection as an essential part of fixed and floating oil and gas platforms used offshore. It mentions the need for the installation of retrofit corrosion protection systems on platforms in the North Sea that are reaching the end of their designed lives. Elements of active or passive cathodic protection systems are described. Benefits offered by active impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems over passive sacrificial anodes are addressed.
