(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'AMARRAGE ET DE TRANSFERT.
Abstract
(EN) An offshore bulk fluid transfer system and method for its deployment in both shallow and deep water. The system is adapted for transfer of fluids between a tanker and another location. Deep water embodiments of the invention provide for a three and four stair step method for deploying the base on the sea floor. Additionally, a method of retrieving the system from the sea floor is disclosed. The offshore bulk fluid transfer system comprises a base (20) and buoyancy tanks (21, 22) attached to the base providing flotation for the system during its transportation to a mooring location. Buoyancy tanks (21, 22) are adapted for flooding to allow the system to be deployed on the sea floor.
(FR) Système off-shore de transfert de fluides en vrac et son procédé de déploiement en eaux profondes et peu profondes. Le système est conçu pour transférer des fluides entre un pétrolier et un autre site. Des modes de réalisation en eaux profondes de l'invention prévoient un procédé en trois ou quatre étapes pour déployer la base sur le fond marin. En outre, un procédé de récupération du système depuis le fond marin est décrit. Le système off-shore de transfert de fluides en vrac comprend une base (20) à laquelle sont fixés des réservoirs de flottabilité (21, 22) permettant la flottaison du système durant son transport jusqu'à un site d'amarrage. Ces réservoirs de flottabilité (21, 22) sont mis en eau pour permettre le déploiement du système sur le fond marin.
