Tetney Sea Line Project

14 December 2015

In the North East of England we replaced a 36" oil pipeline with a length of 4.5 km. The pipeline runs from a buoy at sea in the Tetney Oil Terminal and is used for the intake of crude oil supplied by tankers.

The existing pipeline dated from 1971 and had to be replaced. The work also included a landing and the construction of a remote controlled valve, which required the installation of a Pipeline End Manifold or PLEM.

To limit disturbance of the fragile coast line to a minimum, a large part of the welding took place in the port of Amsterdam. Subsequently, the long strands of pipeline were transported to the project location by ship. A.Hak company Conline-Rhenania covered the pipes in a concrete weight coating.

Project film
The work was part of the Tetney Sea Line Project and was commissioned by general contractor Van Oord. A project movie with impressive images can be found on Vimeo.
