Title (EN) FLOATING OIL STORAGE SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME DE STOCKAGE DE PÉTROLE FLOTTANT ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A floating oil storage system and associated methods for storing oil are disclosed. In some embodiments, the floating oil storage system includes a storage cell, a floating member disposed within the storage cell, whereby the storage cell is divided into a first compartment and a second compartment disposed below the first compartment, a pump operable to deliver oil under pressure into the first compartment, whereby the first compartment expands and the second compartment contracts expelling seawater from the second compartment, and a suction tank operable to receive oil expelled from the first compartment under hydrostatic pressure of seawater in the second compartment, whereby the first compartment contracts and the second compartment expands receiving seawater.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système de stockage de pétrole flottant et des procédés associés pour stocker du pétrole. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le système de stockage de pétrole flottant comprend une cellule de stockage, un élément flottant disposé à l’intérieur de la cellule de stockage, la cellule de stockage étant divisée en un premier compartiment et un second compartiment disposé en dessous du premier compartiment, une pompe utilisable pour distribuer du pétrole sous pression dans le premier compartiment, le premier compartiment s’agrandissant et le second compartiment se contractant, pour expulser l’eau de mer du second compartiment, et un réservoir d’aspiration utilisable pour recevoir du pétrole expulsé du premier compartiment sous pression hydrostatique d’eau de mer dans le second compartiment, le premier compartiment se contractant et le second compartiment s’agrandissant, pour recevoir de l’eau de mer.
