    Abstract: A stabilization system for stabilizing a submarine pipeline supported on a seabed below water level. The seabed is inclined in that it incorporates a sloping section extending between an upper section and a lower section. The stabilization system includes an upper anchoring mechanism for anchoring the pipeline to the upper seabed section adjacent the top end of the sloping section and the other being a lower anchoring mechanism for anchoring the pipeline to the lower seabed section adjacent the bottom end of the sloping seabed section. A buoyancy mechanism is provided along the extent of the pipeline section between the two anchoring mechanisms. The buoyancy provided by the buoyancy mechanism maintains the pipe section above and out of contact with the sloping seabed section.
