About subsea products
Umbilical: an assembly of steel tubes and/or thermoplastic
hoses which can also include electrical cables or optic fibers used to
control subsea structures from a platform or a vessel. Umbilical
systems are the critical link in subsea operations, relaying power,
communications and chemicals between hydraulic-operated equipment on
the seafloor and a platform or support vessel.
Manifold: a piece of pipe with several lateral outlets and/or
inlets for connecting one pipe with others.
Flowline: a pipe, laid on the seabed, which allows the
transportation of oil/gas production or injection of fluids. Its
length can vary from a few hundred metres to several kilometers.
Spool: short length pipe connecting a subsea pipeline and a
riser, or a pipe and a subsea structure.
