1 Scope
This procedure provides instructions and establishes responsibilities for commissioninga new cathodic protection (CP) system or to reactivate an existing system that has beeninoperative for more than 30 days. Following this Engineering Procedure will ensurethat (a) all CP system components are operating within manufacturer's and designparameters, and (b) detrimental effects on other structures caused by the operation of the CP system are minimized and within acceptable tolerance levels.

Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as safety glasses, safety shoeswith electrically insulated soles, etc., shall be worn. Use rubber mats, rubber gloves, orboth, when test leads are used near high voltage AC power lines. Fall restrainingdevices shall be used when working on the top of structures such as storage tanks.Appropriate safety precautions must be followed when making electrical measurements,and include:a. Use properly insulated test lead clips and terminals to avoid contact withunexpected hazardous voltages. Test clips should be attached one at a time eachtime a connection is made. A single hand should be used to make the connection,in a well balanced body position, while the other hand should be free from restingon any surface.b. Use caution when long test leads (100 meters or longer) are extended nearoverhead high voltage AC power lines, since hazardous voltages can be inducedinto the test leads. Use rubber mats, rubber gloves, or both, when makingmeasurements if induced AC potentials over 15 volts are measured on pipelinesnear high voltage AC power lines.c. Use caution when stringing test leads across streets, roads and other locationssubject to vehicular traffic.d. Use caution when making tests at electrical isolation devices. Appropriate voltagedetection instruments or voltmeters with insulated test leads should be used todetermine if hazardous voltages exist before proceeding with tests.e. Personnel must be knowledgeable and qualified in electrical safety precautionsprior to installing, adjusting, repairing or removing impressed current protectionequipment.f. Testing should be avoided when thunderstorms are in the area. Remote lightningstrikes can create hazardous voltage surges that travel along the pipe under test.g. Inspect excavations and confined spaces and ensure they are in a safe conditionprior to entering. This includes testing for gas, as discussed above. Follow allappropriate Saudi Aramco Work Permit procedures (See GI-0002.100).
4 Instructions
