Remarks : A pipeline is a string of interconnected pipes used for the transport of matter, nowadays mainly oil or gas (IHO Dictionary, S-32, 5th Edition, 3857). It must be assumed that the pipes are vulnerable to damage from anchoring or trawling. They may be a potential danger to navigation (IHO Chart Specifications, M-4).
