of extraction columns due to the lack of friction on lake bottom.
of capacity and less risk of blocking because of the vertical nature of the columns
yield due to the separator being at depth.
of an unrefined gas pipeline under the lake surface
Separation of the station
into two distinct units resulting in the doubling of security, service and maintenance
personnel. Choice of lake site dependent on where treatment plant could be established
on the shore. (*) Note : in the hypothesis that the separator is on the barge
the yield will be equivalent to the on-shore solution and the main advantage of
the off-shore solution would be lost
