EMODnet Human Activities, Pipelines


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The dataset on offshore pipelines in the EU was created in 2017 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all over the EU (plus Norway). The database contains lines representing the actual routes of offshore pipelines (where available) in the following countries: Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain (Andalucía), Sweden and United Kingdom. Each line has the following harmonized attributes (where available): code, name, status (abandoned, active, application submitted, not in use, planned, pre-commissioning, proposed, under construction), medium (air, chemical glycol, chemical methanol, chemical n/a, condensate, control, cooling water, gas, geothermal heating, hydraulic, mixed hydrocarbons, oil, other fluid, sewage, water), operator, size (inches), length (metres), year, from and to locality or facility, country code, country name and notes. Compared with the previous version, this new version includes updated data from Helcom and Nord Stream 2 sources.

Lineage
Lineage statement
                    Data were retrieved from different sources. Validation and quality assurance remain up to primary data sources, while harmonization is carried out by Cogea. For further information on validation and quality assurance, it is suggested that primary data sources are contacted. Generally speaking, data are to be considered very reliable, because they come from national sources officially in charge for their collection. When a pipeline crosses more than a country, it may appear as two different pipelines which do not perfectly overlap. This is because it was not possible to harmonize the geometric component of the data, as each source reports a slightly different pipeline's path and there is no way to know which one is more accurate.
