Marine pipelines' most serious risks to human life and the environment have to do, not with corrosion, but with larger scale damage from anchors, fishing nets, and storm-induced failure of the supporting sediments see Chapter 2. In shallow waters less than about 15 feet , collisions of vessels with inadequately buried pipelines can kill as shown by the Northumberland and Sea Chief cases, in which fishing vessels burned and crew members died after the vessels struck exposed pipelines in shallow water. In deeper waters, anchor and net damage has been responsible for more than 90 percent of the pipeline oil pollution recorded on the OCS between and ; the four largest spills—all caused by anchor damage, and totaling , barrels—accounted for 85 percent of the volume of pollution from pipelines during this period see Chapter 2.

Trend of the environmental supervision on submarine pipeline installation

Submarine pipelines are indispensable for marine oil and gas transportation and water supply to islands. They have been used to transport oil, gas, oil-gas mixture, or water Qu et al. Construction method is very important for costly and time-consuming marine pipeline installation and should be selected after an overall consideration of technique, capital, and time Wang et al. Moreover, the environmental impact and safety of construction, and its impact on the surrounding marine exploitation are also determinants. Besides common laybarge and tow methods Sun , subsea pipelines can also be installed by horizontal directional drilling HDD , shield tunneling, and mine tunneling Wei et al. During the pipeline installation of varying methods, both the environmental impact and key points of environmental supervision are different. Laybarge method applies to the laying of long pipelines in the deeper seawater off the coast, being less susceptible to waves and enjoying a rapid construction speed Wang et al.

Kamyshev, M. Development of offshore oil and gas fields involved the necessity of installation of multiple underwater pipelines to transport oil and natural gas. In the past intensive research has been conducted in the USSR into various theoretical and practical aspects of the marine pipe line construction. This paper presents the results of experimental studies of hydrodynamic and kinematic behaviour of the marine pipelines. The basic laws are considered of the pipeline hydrodynamic resistance in the process of its towing for different installation methods: from the sea surface and by a submerged method in a broad variety of the pipeline design.

Hyams, M. This paper outlines the environmental management controls successfully implemented during the construction of two offshore mini-platforms and associated pipelines located in environmentally sensitive shallow tropical marine waters in the North West Shelf area of Western Australia. The innovative barge anchoring methods implemented during the installation of the pipelines were successful in ensuring that no significant damage occurred to the 1, coral bomboras surveyed within both pipeline alignments. These projects serve as a case study demonstrating that the installation ofpetroleum facilities can be successfully undertaken in sensitive marine environments with no adverse environmental impacts on sensitive seabed habitats. The Victoria and Double Island oil field developments involved the construction and stabilisation of two offshore pipeline bundles and the installation of two small offshore oil platforms. The Victoria development consists of an offshore mini-platform with capacity for six production wells. The constructed pipeline bundle from this mini-platform was tied into an existing production pipeline via a sub sea "Tpiece".

Offshore Pipelines Design Installation and Maintenance

Pipeline transport is the long-distance transportation of a liquid or gas through a system of pipes —a pipeline—typically to a market area for consumption. Liquids and gases are transported in pipelines, and any chemically stable substance can be sent through a pipeline. Pipelines are useful for transporting water for drinking or irrigation over long distances when it needs to move over hills , or where canals or channels are poor choices due to considerations of evaporation , pollution , or environmental impact.

Stopping the production, heavy loss and environmental hazards are the outcomes of damaging the offshore pipelines. Several cases of damaging because of fishing activities and clash anchors are reported in the Persian Gulf annually. In this paper, response of pipeline against the traction of hooking the anchor and trawling the gear is studied.

Outline of submarine pipeline construction methods

TorcSill and its AnchorPipe TEAM designed and installed helical anchors to provide offshore buoyancy control and stabilization for various pipelines at two pipeline crossings in the Gulf of Mexico. The owner required a method to stabilize its pipeline at two nearshore pipeline crossing locations, at which the pipelines would be subjected to buoyancy, current, wave and other hydrodynamic forces. In addition to the engineering challenges, project schedule, budget, safe future pipeline operating conditions and an anchoring foundation design life of at least 50 years were factors in the material design and construction planning. Design and manufacturing required custom clamp fabrication to accommodate and secure up to 3 pipelines bundled together. For the safest and most efficient installation, TorcSill utilized a vessel-mounted crane rigged to its unique twin-drive anchor installation system designed to install a complete anchor set two helical anchors and pipeline clamp in a single approach.

June 19—24, In particular, the S-lay feasibility depends on the applicable tension at the tensioner which is a function of water depth, stinger geometry length and curvature , and installation criteria. In this paper: — The challenges of future deep water offshore pipelines are briefly presented; — The installation criteria at the overbend, stinger tip and sagbend are discussed; — The ABAQUS FE Model, developed to simulate pipeline installation, is presented together with the pre- and post-processing program put in place; — The results of the developed ABAQUS FE Model are given considering two typical examples of deep water pipelines installed in the S-lay mode.
