AbstractA 3D physical modelling campaign has been conducted to support the efficient and reliable design of secondary stabilization measures for subsea pipelines to be installed as part of the Browse LNG project. Many different secondary stabilization designs were assessed including static and dynamically re-shaping rock berms, gravity anchors, and V-shaped trenches. Modelled rock berm structures were constructed underwater to simulate prototype construction by fallpipe. This study generated a large amount of data and new information concerning the behaviour and reliability of pipeline stabilization measures in shallow water under extreme short-crested waves and currents.
