Seabed mobility, sand waves migration & pipeline burial criteria

Seabed dynamics plays an important role in selecting offshore pipeline site and optimizing pipeline route. It is one of the critical design parameters in the design of a pipeline through a morphologically dynamic area such as migrating sand waves.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in predicting future extremely low seabed level in a morphologically dynamic area, which is required to determine the burial depth of a pipeline.

Both short term and long term coast evolution will be assessed to quantify the expected lowest seabed level along the pipeline route in the landfall area during the pipeline lifetime.
