Spillinator Version 3

This design is somewhat downscaled from the earlier version but retains the essential features. The riser hook-up valves are on the side, and now they use the roof of the spillinator as a platform. The relief hatches are mounted on a chimney to keep them out of the way of the valves. Note that forty-foot containers are used on top of the hole shown in the center of the previous image.

Electric pumps will have to be used instead of riser pressure in order to bring the oil to the surface. I’m hoping that pumps capable of operating at a depth of one mile beneath the surface of the sea are available. Otherwise, another idea will have to be used.

This model was built in Sketchup without thinking too much about the interior. I’ll fix it tomorrow. But the outside looks like what it should for now.
