The geodatabase on offshore pipelines in the EU was created in 2017 by Cogea for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all over the EU (plus Norway). The database contains lines representing the actual routes of offshore pipelines (where available) in the following countries: Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain (Andalucía). Each line has the following harmonized attributes (where available): status (in service, decommissioned, under construction, proposed, planned), country, code, name, year, medium (air, condensate, 'control', cooling water, gas, geothermal heating, glycol, methanol, oil, sewage, water), operator, from and to locality or facility, length (metres) and size (inches).
