River Humber Pipeline

The River Humber pipeline is an important pipeline - connecting an import location for gas at Easington, on the East Yorkshire coast, to the national network – delivering gas supplies to millions of homes and businesses throughout the UK. This long-term project sees the construction of a replacement, high-pressure gas pipeline. Housed within a tunnel, underneath the River Humber, the pipeline will replace the existing one, which lies on the riverbed. The project will provide the 5km tunnel and involves inserting a single string of 42” steel pipe and connecting it into the above-ground installations at Paull and Goxhill villages. This world record pipeline will be the longest gas pipeline in a tunnel, inserted in a single string, in the world.
