NORFOLK. A team of men working on the lining up operation of the Fens gas pipeline, showing a welder carrying out a stringer bead weld on a joint between two pipes.
Work on laying the Fens gas pipeline started in June 1967 and was a joint venture between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM) for the Gas Council. Over 600 men worked on the project to lay 36 inch diameter steel pipes starting at West Winch in Norfolk and running to where it linked up with the next contract at Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire. The pipeline crossed four rivers and numerous dykes and ditches

1960s Engineering Gas Supply North Sea Gas People Pipeline Work


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a pivotal moment in the construction of the Fens gas pipeline in Norfolk during the 1960s. In this image, a team of dedicated men can be seen meticulously aligning two pipes as part of the lining up operation. The focus is on a skilled welder who is carrying out a stringer bead weld on the joint between these pipes, showcasing their expertise and precision. The Fens gas pipeline project commenced in June 1967 and was an ambitious collaboration between Laing Civil Engineering, Entrepose, and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM) for the Gas Council. With over 600 workers involved, this massive undertaking aimed to lay 36-inch diameter steel pipes that stretched from West Winch in Norfolk to Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire. Along its path, this vital lifeline crossed four rivers as well as numerous dykes and ditches. This photograph not only highlights the remarkable engineering feat achieved by these industrious individuals but also sheds light on their significant contribution to ensuring a stable supply of North Sea gas. Their dedication and hard work played an integral role in shaping Britain's energy infrastructure during this era. Preserved within Historic England Archive's collection, this image serves as a powerful reminder of the immense effort put forth by those who labored tirelessly behind-the-scenes to fuel our nation's progress.
