Abstract


Early 1991, Statoil started with the installation of a 40 inch diameter gas pipeline between the Sleipner and later Troll field in the Norvegian sector of the North Sea and the harbour of Zeebrugge on the Belgian coast. The connection between the offshore and the onshore pipeline was performed in August 1991, in the landfall area of Zeebrugge. The design and the construction of the landfall in the nearshore area required an extensive survey and engineering program taking the environmental parameters and the coastal processes into account.
