Between them, the 16 participants account for some 14,000 km of buried oil/gas pipelines in England, Wales and Scotland.
Linewatch’s aim is to prevent accidents caused by infringements on pipeline routes in the UK.
The infringements database stores details of any potential incidents and reports on them using trends and segmentation charts.
