REDESIGN, FABRICATION AND TEST OF A 1000-GPM HIGH SEAS OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM AND DESIGN ONLY OF A 500-GPM HIGH SEAS OIL RECOVERY

This report covers the redesign, fabrication and test of a 1000-GPM high seas oil recovery system. It also discusses the design of a 500-GMP Oil Recovery System. This system was built primarily from the components of the 2000-GPM system. Modifications, improvements and some redesign were incorporated in this unit based on previous basin and at-sea tests. Changes were made primarily in the weir/basin and included the elimination of the trailing hoses. Limited oil collection tests in an inland tow tank and at-sea tests in the ocean were conducted using the 1000-GPM system.
