PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION BOOMING IN NORTH SEA
The boom in North Sea pipelining forecast for the early 1990s is under way. Three major projects-two gas lines and an oil line-have started in the central U.K. North Sea. Next year activity will extend into Norwegian and Dutch waters. BP Exploration has started work on a replacement for the Forties oil line and a line to bring sour gas from Miller field to St. Fergus, Scotland, also the destination for Mobil North Sea's Beryl gas line.
