ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF OIL AND GAS PIPELINE LANDFALLS IN NORTHEAST SCOTLAND

William Ritchie Krueger

Abstract


Oil and gas pipelines from the North Sea have reached the northeast coast of Scotland from offshore production platforms. The pipelines date from 1973 to 1976. The environmental effects of these pipelines are compared as are the relationships between engineering work, environmental impact assessment and planning procedures. There is also a discussion of methods used to protect and restore these three landfall areas.
