In the June 2021 issue of Tanks and Terminals, a quarterly supplement to Hydrocarbon Engineering, MATCOR’s Ted Huck discusses cathodic protection of terminal marine structures including docks, jetties, piers, seawalls and sheet pilings.
The article includes a case story discussion from a Texas gulf coast facility using impressed current cathodic protection for a combi-wall structure (consisting of pipe piles and sheet walls.).
In 2019, MATCOR opened new offices in Casper WY, and Midland, TX to better support those regions.
Two years and one pandemic later, we have seen great success from both regions as we’ve increased our service capacity, deployed construction crews and technicians and staffed each office with experienced cathodic protection professionals.
This month we wanted to highlight a similar customer success story from our Horizontal Directional Drilling crew for two recent tank anode systems installed for a Texas based Midstream company with operations in the Permian.
Upon completion of the project, we received a compliment from the client’s Corrosion Supervisor, who reached out to MATCOR’s Permian based project manager, Mario Mahabir saying:
Well MATCOR appreciates the opportunity to work on this project!
For the this project, MATCOR designed, installed and commissioned dedicated under tank cathodic protection systems on two above ground storage tanks.
Installation was performed using our horizontal directional drilling rig and MATCOR’s proprietary mixed metal oxide anodes to install anodes and reference electrode pull tubes under two existing tanks.
Give the MATCOR Permian and Rockies teams a look—we think you will like what you see.

Rusty Talks about the MATCOR PW® anode, which protects near shore structures in water from the effects of corrosion…
“It’s summertime and our thoughts go to water—backyard swimming pools, kayaking along rivers, boating on lakes, and lounging around the ocean.
Well, here at MATCOR, when we think water, we think about the very versatile MATCOR PW® ANODE system.
Check out some details below and contact our team for assistance.” — RUSTY
Corrosion Prevention of Structures in Water
The PW anode is a lightweight, long life anode system that can be installed to protect a wide range of near shore marine structures from corrosion, including:
Sheet pile walls
Wind turbine jackets and monopiles
Stationary floating vessels such as riverboat casinos and historic naval vessels
The PW anode system consists of a custom fabricated PVC anode housing and a MATCOR Mixed Metal Oxide anode assembly.
The PW Anode can be supplied with a lowering rope, eye bolt assembly, and optional weight assembly for hanging.
This versatile anode is available in a wide range of sizes and current outputs or can be custom designed for a specific application’s requirements.

MATCOR’s innovative engineered grounding system, the MITIGATOR®, was honored as a winner of the Open Innovation Factory 2021 Awards on June 22nd in Lyon, France.
Over 65 different innovations were nominated, and the MITIGATOR was one of seven trophy winners.
MATCOR’s innovation was nominated by GRT GAZ France, a European leader in natural gas transportation operating over 32,000 km of buried pipelines to transport natural gas from suppliers to consumers connected to its networks.
The MATCOR MITIGATOR is an engineered linear grounding system. It consists of a central copper conductor packaged inside a fabric housing with an enhanced grounding backfill that incorporates a copper corrosion inhibitor to protect the central copper conductor.
This product is ideal for AC mitigation using a parallel gradient control wire grounding configuration.
