Title (EN) STABILIZING CHAMBER FOR USE WITH A MOBILE OFFSHORE UNIT
(FR) CHAMBRE DE STABILISATION À UTILISER AVEC UNE UNITÉ MOBILE OFFSHORE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A stabilizing chamber to be used with a mobile offshore unit and a method of manufacturing and stabilizing therewith are disclosed. The stabilizing chamber includes a housing configured to removably receive and retain fluid therein, a first support, and a second support. The first and second supports are attached to the same side of the housing, and at least one of the supports is configured to support the weight of the stabilizing chamber. These supports are then configured to removably connect with the mobile offshore unit. The housing of the stabilizing chamber may be filled with fluid to at least partially submerge the stabilizing chamber. After fluid is received within the stabilizing chamber, the stabilizing chamber may be disconnected from the mobile offshore unit.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une chambre de stabilisation à utiliser avec une unité mobile offshore ainsi qu’un procédé de production et de stabilisation utilisant ladite chambre. La chambre de stabilisation comprend un logement configuré pour recevoir et retenir de manière provisoire un fluide, un premier support et un second support. Le premier et le second support sont fixés sur le même côté du logement, et au moins un desdits supports est configuré pour supporter le poids de la chambre de stabilisation. Ces supports sont de plus configurés pour être raccordés de manière amovible à l’unité mobile offshore. Le logement de la chambre de stabilisation peut être rempli d’un fluide pour submerger au moins partiellement la chambre de stabilisation. Suite à la réception du fluide dans la chambre de stabilisation, ladite chambre peut être détachée de l’unité mobile offshore.
