ECONOMIC MODELS OF SUBSEA PIPELINE CONNECTORS

Economic models analyze the sensitivity of some of the costs encountered in the eleven under sea pipeline connections on the 34" oil line from Ekofisk to Teesside for hydroball/hydrocouples, hyperbaric chambers, and one-atmosphere chambers. The economic models are summarized by a graph showing the cost for eleven 34 inch connections as a function of the number of productive work days required per connection. The results do not prove that one system is better than another, but do show the sensitivity to the day rates and productive work days required for each system.
