PR-620-173603-R01

Techniques employed by pipeline operators for locating static or dynamic stray current vary widely across the industry.  PRCI has requested development of a process that operators can apply consistently to locate, validate, test and provide engineering analysis for the impact of  Direct Current (DC) stray electrical current on pipelines.  The purpose of this project is to research and quantify the leading practices used in industry for precise location, measurement and evaluation of stray currents affecting transmission pipelines.
