Offshore pipeline is is the fastest, the safest , the most reliable and the most economic mode to transport offshore gas and oil. And carbon steel pipe are widely used in offshore pipeline. It can transfer considerable amounts of oil pipeline to the seabed through the closed tubes, which are key parts of the offshore oil (gas) area development and production system. According to the different of transmitter, offshore pipeline can be divided into undersea oil pipelines, submarine gas pipelines, undersea gas and oil mixed transportation pipelines and underwater aqueduct. However, based on the structure, offshore pipes are divided into double insulation pipes and single pipes.
Oil transportation efficiency of offshore pipeline is very high and oil tanker capacity is large.We can use offshore pipeline to transport the oil or gas continuously since the environment conditions influence it little. It does not force the oil fields to reduce output or stop, due to the limitations of offshore oil storage facility capacity or shuttle tanker without picking promptly. In addition, submarine pipeline construction is short with fast production. Moreover, it is convenient to manage and operate. And the operation cost is too low.
But inspection and maintenance of offshore pipeline will meet much more difficulties, because the pipeline is under the seabed and most of them need to be hidden in the seabed soil with particular depth. And some pipelines (especially vertical pipe riser stack), are greatly impacted by wind, waves, tide, and ice, etc. in the tidal range or wave breaking zone. Sometimes, the pipelines may be hit by floats in the ocean or anchor broken by the ship, Which will cause much trouble.
