Qatar Land Crude (QLC) oil loaded from the shore installation is connected to the Buoy by a 36” submarine pipeline. The seaward end of the pipeline and Buoy terminates in two 16” flexible floating hoses.

The SPM is also designed to accommodate vessels for loading Naphtha.

The submarine pipeline is 30” and the seaward end of the pipeline and Buoy terminates in two 16” flexible floating hoses.
Mesaieed Pilots act in the capacity of Berthing Masters in mooring of vessels, after which they supervise the raising of the flexible hoses and their connection to the ship’s manifolds. During loading operations they act as QP Representatives (Loading Master).
