Abstract

This paper reviews the findings of two inquiries into the loss of the fishing vessel, Westhaven. It provides an account of international and UK law, and presents advice to be followed when fishing gear has snagged on a subsea pipeline. Possible arrangements for provision of more detailed information on charts on pipeline burial and freespan status are discussed. Finally the implications of the Westhaven tragedy for pipeline decommissioning and abandonment are examined.
