and maintained for:
All POL liquid fuel pipelines and storage facilities in accordance
with the provisions of Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 49
Chapter 1, Part 195, Transportation of Liquids by Pipeline and CFR
Title 40 Chapter 1, Part 112, Oil Pollution Prevention. Overseas
activities should comply with the requirements of the Department of
Defense (DOD) Overseas Environmental Baseline Guidance
Document and applicable area governing standards.
All natural gas pipelines in accordance with the provisions of CFR
Title 49 Chapter 1, Part 192, Transportation of Natural and Other
Gas by Pipeline.
All steel underground storage tank systems in accordance with
CFR 40 Part 280, Technical Standards and Corrective Action for
Owners and Operators of Underground Storage Tanks, or more
stringent state/local regulations as applicable. Overseas activities
should comply with the requirements of the DOD Overseas
Environmental Baseline Guidance Document and applicable
governing area standards.
All buried or submerged metallic shore facilities in which the
electrolyte (soil or water) resistivities are below 10,000 ohm-cm at
the installation depth at any point along the installation.
Other facilities as indicated in Corrosion Control Reference C listed
in paragraph B-6.
Reference C listed in paragraph B-6 describes the policy in more detail. For
any questions on the policy please contact your Engineering Field Division (EFD)
cathodic protection program manager or the NAVFACENGCOM Cathodic Protection
Technical Expert at the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NFESC) as listed
in Figure B-1.
Corrosion Control. The corrosion control systems described below are those
most commonly used on shore facilities:
a) Protective Coatings. Coatings provide protection to a variety of substrates
(metals, wood, concrete, etc.) by forming a barrier to the surrounding environment. The
continuing integrity of this barrier film is necessary for continuing protection.
b) Cathodic Protection (CP). Metal structures (including rebar) buried or
immersed in electrolyte (e.g. soil, water, concrete) can be cathodically protected from
