    Background: A large-diameter underwater pipeline is under construction in Haifa Bay, Israel, designed to carry oil from post installations to an anchorage at sea, facilitating the loading of tankers with the increased quantities of petroleum coming by 16-inch pipe from Eilat on the Red Sea.

    Carried out by an Israeli firm, the project will cost 1 million Israeli pounds. Made from plates imported from abroad, the port pipeline is to be 3.5 kilometres long and capable of serving the world's biggest tankers.

    The Eilat-Haifa 16-inch line, completed last July, is expected to handle some 5.5 million tons of oil per year.
