A subsea manifold-riser system is redeployed from a first production location to a second production location. A manifold module is lowered to the ocean floor at the first production location using a marine riser as a running tool by adding threaded pipe sections to the upper end of the marine riser. The manifold module is raised from the ocean floor at the first production location for redeployment at the second production location using the marine riser as a retrieval tool by removing threaded pipe sections from the upper end of the marine riser.

A liquefied natural gas production facility and a method of designing and constructing a liquefied natural gas production facility are described. The facility includes space-apart modules for installation at a production location to form a production train including a major axis and a minor axis, each module including a module base for mounting a plurality of plant equipment associated with a selected function assigned to the module, the module base including a major axis and a minor axis. Heat exchangers are arranged to run parallel to the major axis of the production train to form a heat exchanger bank including a major axis and a minor axis, where the major axis of the bank is parallel to the major axis of the train. A subset of the plurality of heat exchangers is arranged on a first level vertically offset from the base of at least one module.

A method and a system of marine seismic surveying is disclosed. The method includes the step of acquiring a set of seismic survey data in a marine seismic survey, the set of acquired seismic survey data including a first received signal generated by a first source signal, and, a second received signal generated by a second source signal, wherein the first source signal is a continuously varying seismic signal transmitted by a first source over a predetermined period of time, and, the second source signal is an impulsive seismic signal transmitted by a second source signal over the same predetermined period of time; and, processing the acquired set of seismic survey data to extract the first received signal and the second received signal. In a preferred form, the first source is a magneto-hydrodynamic source.
