This project was undertaken to provide information on North Sea offshore pipelines and the processes used in route selection decision-making. It is designed to be used by persons involved in offshore oil and gas pipeline planning, including pipeline corridors and landfalls. A brief overview of offshore activity in both the United Kingdom and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea is presented, with special emphasis on the transportation systems established or proposed for the major commercial fields. The report then focuses on the specific issues arising from the installation and operation of each of these transportation systems. These issues include: regulations affecting pipeline placement, criteria for route selection, pipeline trenching and burial, and conflicts with the fishing industry in the North Sea.
