MODERN PIPE LINE CONCEPT FOR OFFSHORE
After the oil spill in in the Gulf of Mexico this is new concept design for a pipeline under deep-sea. Its great advantage is that using the same quality materials 3 layered pipes are used in place of the existing ones so that it will last for next 25 to 75 yrs with zero maintenance.
The outermost layer of the pipe is for protection from sea water which is salty.
The middle layer protects from any leak in the innermost layer of the pipe. If there is a leak it is easier to clean without damaging the environment. It collects all the oil or any chemicals etc. in the middle layer and the sensor attached to it will monitor it 24x 7.
The innermost layer of the pipe is used for the actual transfer of oil or other materials.
Since the cost of repairs in deep sea is very high this can substantially reduce the production cost and also ensures that the environment is protected.
