About the CLH Pipeline System
The CLH Pipeline System is a UK-based pipeline network that at a certain point consisted of over 2,500km of pipelines leading to 46 other facilities. The early 1940s saw a bigger import of fuel, and the country needed a system that would be able to transport the sudden influx of aviation fuel.
Storage facilities for fuel were located in Avonmouth, Southampton, and the Humber area, with multiple pipelines connected to supply airports like Heathrow. However, this pipeline system required a substantial amount of maintenance to ensure there weren’t any potential leaks or damage impacting the operational ability of the pipeline assets.
