Rig Drop Hose

In an offshore environment, after waste water has been fully treated and certified safe to be put back into the sea, it cannot just be discarded at deck level. A vertical hose string, sometimes reinforced with chain or secured to a leg of the rig, delivers the fluid straight down to the water’s surface to cause the minimum amount of disturbance to any operations that may be going on, i.e. bunkering hose transfer.
