Abstract: Submarine pipelines, regarded as the blood 'vessels' in offshore oil and gas engineering, are constantly being studied and developed in both the academia and the industry. In order to understand how researches and technologies related to submarine pipelines evolved during the past years and forecast future lines of research, the existing literature and patents regarding submarine pipelines are retrieved from Web of Science, and a bibliometric analysis for co-authorship, citation, keyword co-occurrence, technology evolution, etc. are conducted and visualised.

Keywords: submarine pipeline; offshore engineering; scientometric; mapping knowledge domain; patent analysis; visualised analysis; visualisation; science mapping; bibliometric; citation analysis.
