Annual CP survey

Survey says. Some clients are short-staffed. But they still have a long list of regulations that affect their industry. A natural-gas utility was required to record about 30,000 annual cathodic-protection readings at various test stations widely distributed throughout a Midwestern state. Due to budgetary, personnel and timing constraints, the client needed an affordable annual plan to meet regulatory mandates.

CPM created and has managed an annual-reads program for this client since 2008. The program is managed daily by a NACE-certified supervisor who coordinates up to 20 technicians to correctly locate and record the readings using client-supplied handheld devices. In addition to meeting government regulations, all of our work must meet client expectations laid out in a strict quality-control program.

Result: The client has met all regulatory requirements since the inception of the program -- all at an affordable price. We also understand that we represent our clients in communities as we do our field work. CPM has maintained our client’s reputation for a high level of customer service as we conducted readings throughout the state.
