MESA’s services offerings encompass engineering, cathodic protection and integrity services for tanks, terminals, and pipelines. From assessment to maintenance, including analysis, installation and corrective action, MESA provides the expertise, qualifications, and capabilities to satisfy virtually all corrosion control requirements.

MESA’s approach for pipeline integrity is based on an ECDA process. Through the four-step process, MESA engineers and technicians provide comprehensive evaluations and develop remediation schemes designed specifically for terminal piping facilities. Beginning with the initial evaluation of the existing cathodic protection program, MESA gathers information from single bottom and double bottom tanks, as well as tanks equipped with environmental liners. Our tank evaluation plan ensures that every tank is assessed and corrective action is developed to either meet industry standards or your specific policy and accepted criteria.

MESA’s installation crews provide a unique combination of technologies, equipment, skills, and experience, which enables us to evaluate and implement appropriate corrective actions. MESA designs and installs corrosion rate probes and/or vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors to control corrosion within the inaccessible interstitial space on double bottom tanks, or those equipped with environmental liners. MESA’s horizontal directional drilling equipment provides the capability to design and install under-tank reference electrodes and replaceable cathodic systems for new and existing ASTs.

The knowledge and experience of MESA’s team ensures that your project will be completed timely and correctly, with follow-up measures identified to ensure the continued success of your corrosion control and integrity program. MESA’s comprehensive CP and integrity expertise enables us to complete any job SAFELY and with complete confidence.
