The civil engineering work on the Northcoates oil pipeline was carried out by Laing Pipelines along with French companies Entrepose and GTM, and the main contractor for the dredging work was Dredging and Construction Company along with Adriaan Volker of Rotterdam. Over two miles of 36 inch diameter pipeline, encased in concrete, was pulled out to sea in the Humber Estuary on 16th June 1970
