Natural Gas Pipe Routine Inspection 17 October 2007

Near shore inspections of the Isle of Man Natural Gas Pipeline have recently been completed in line with routine subsea pipeline inspection requirements.

The survey took place off Glen Mooar by specialists Environmental Surveys Ltd – one of the UK’s leading contractors in environmental and geophysical surveys.

The specialist vessel Titan Explorer conducted the survey which involved a side scan sonar survey along the route, checking for potential debris, the seabed depth survey across the pipeline and also an assessment of corrosion protection system. Onshore inspection work also took place within the inter-tidal zone (between high tide and low tide).

The work was carried out on behalf of Noordhoek Offshore who are contracted to Bord Gais Eireann. Inspections were completed successfully and a detailed report is to be presented to all interested parties in the Spring of 2008.
