Abstract: This lecture explores the process of innovation in the pipeline industry. It examines some developments that have changed the face of the industry, some that look promising but have failed to catch on, and some that have failed. Many of the innovations are taken from marine pipelines, because that is the field the author is more familiar with, but some apply equally to land pipelines.

The innovations discussed are the trenching of underwater pipelines, flash butt welding, dynamic positioning of laybarges, reel installation of pipeline bundles, limit-state design,inspection methods and artificial permafrost protection.
