Pipe pushing and boarding under Northsea

The Porthos project began in April with the first drillings under the hard sea dyke. In total, the work on Maasvlakte 2 lasted more than a month, during which the contractor LMR Drilling GmbH’s team worked day and night to achieve the desired result within the tight schedule.


Curious about how this remarkable achievement came about? Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the drilling, the preparations for the insertion and the moment the casing was inserted.

Porthos is a joint venture between EBN, Gasunie and the Port of Rotterdam: Energie Beheer Nederland, Gasunie and the Port of Rotterdam. For more information:
