Underwater pipelines are exposed to hydrodynamic and hydrostatic parameters of the environmental conditions, in the region. In this study, in order to investigate the stability of the underwater pipelines, taking into account the waves and currents induced forces, a stability analysis is performed. There are few standards for designing and analysis of underwater pipelines. The two standards, DNV-RP-C205 and DNV-RP-E305 were used. The study area was the coastal zone of Asaluyeh Port and data used included Asaluyeh wave data, from 2007 to 2008, which were collected by a floating buoy. On the other hand, data on currents were based on Ports and Maritime Organization information. Hydrodynamic coefficients such as Reynolds number, Kvlgan Carpenter and hydrodynamic forces induced on the pipeline in different conditions were calculated. The results showed that in current conditions, designing pipes larger than 0.7m in diameter is not suitable. However, the most suitable designs are pipes with 0.4m in diameter. The minimum weight of pipes with 0.7m diameter, in significant wave height condition under the water, was calculated to be 1365 kg/m.
