The corrosion problem of various types of cargo pipelines in tankers is evaluated. Corrosion of iron pipes in crude oil service has been of three distinct types: (1) numerous small pits on the upper half of the outside of the pipe; (2) large pits in the bottom segment of the interior of the pipe; and (3) loss of metal from the edge of straight-ended pipes. Exterior pipeline corrosion can be suppressed by cathodic protection. A TV technique which enables ship owners to inspect the interior of their piping systems with the minimum of disruption and expense is described.
