at Lomond, where there was a subsea isolation valve, which meant a relatively simple flange connection. At the other end, where the existing pipeline had been dredged out, to be cut, the pipeline’s concrete coating had to be removed, then the pipe cut in order for the diver-installed mechanical connectors to be installed. As this work was being carried out it was discovered that the 8in pipeline was not the diameter expected. This was important in order for the connectors, construction of which had started already, to fit. Luckily, the connectors were able to be modified.Once the new section of
