THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF A SUBMERGED BUOYANT, ANCHORED PIPELINE FOR TRANSPORTING NATURAL GAS THROUGH THE DEEP OCEAN

A submerged, buoyant pipeline, anchored below the surface energy effects, is evaluated technically and economically for the case of transporting natural gas from North Africa to Southern Europe. Several pipelines of different diameters are analyzed to determine cable spacing, cable sizes, anchor sizes, and other factors having important bearing upon costs. For various levels of market demand, estimates are made of capital investment and cost. Installation costs and provisions for preventive maintenance and safety are included in the study.
