A water current power generation system is provided, including at least one or more submerged flotation chambers; one or more submerged induction type power generation units disposed in communication with the one or more submerged flotation chambers; one or more impellers disposed in communication with the one or more submerged induction type power generation units; one or more body frame members disposed in communication with the one or more submerged induction type power generation units; and one or more impeller rotation means disposed in communication with the one or more body frame members. A variety of additional structures useful together, individually or in various combinations with the disclosed system, are also disclosed. Methods of transporting and maintaining the system, or individual components and subsystems thereof, are also disclosed.


A method of installing a pipeline under land or relatively shallow water with minimal disturbance of the surface environment is provided wherein a subsurface, horizontal hole is drilled between spaced apart sites established between a source location and a destination location, and pipe segments are then run through the horizontal hole to connect the locations. The method drills the horizontal hole by positioning a first horizontal drilling rig at a source location and a second horizontal drilling rig at a destination location, and the using the rigs to drill a horizontal hole between the source and destination locations by means of a transverse reaming process.

A system and method in which a buoyant central docking station captures, lifts and couples one or more other sea vessels is disclosed, wherein a flexible, modularized production system is quickly realized on a cost effective basis. The capabilities of a number of older, less expensive, readily available vessels are combined to achieve an effective FPSO substitute that allows lower producing fields to be explored and produced in a profitable manner. The time horizon between initiation and consummation of field operations is reduced, and older vessels that might otherwise be scrapped or retired are again made useful and seaworthy in a safe and profitable exploration and production environment.


The present invention relates to a water current power generation system (101, 201, 801, 1200) comprising at least one or more submerged flotation chambers (1207); one or more submerged induction type power generation units (104) disposed in communication with the one or more submerged flotation chambers (1207); one or more impellers (105, 202, 407, 408, 501, 802, 803, 901, 902, 1205, 1206) disposed in communication with the one or more submerged induction type power generation units (104); one or more body frame members (1203, 1204) disposed in communication with the one or more submerged induction type power generation units (104); and one or more impeller rotation means (1210) disposed in communication with the one or more body frame members (1203, 1204). A variety of additional structures useful together, individually or in various combinations with the disclosed system, are also disclosed. Moreover, the invention relates to a method of transporting and maintaining the system, or individual components and subsystems thereof.
