an effect on instant-off potential and this might need to be considered by CP opera- tors in the case of using VCI slurry in sup- plementing an existing ICCP system. How- ever, an experiment for longer duration or actual field trials is required to confirm the value of this effect and whether it is tran- sient or permanent.
