  •  Feeling a little better about this now (1+ / 0-)

    They put out an animation which explains how it's supposed to work a little better.

    The pipe coming up from the cap is designed to interface with drill pipe. It seems to be big enough to handle the flow. Still slightly concerned about temperature, but that is what the methanol lines are for, and it's a relatively short distance the oil has to travel through "naked" drill pipe before it reaches the heated riser.

    This might actually work.

    •  Good animation. (0+ / 0-)

      I wish they would release more stuff like this -- it would save me so much time speculating.

      (It all works so perfectly in the animation. Let's see what reality brings to the table.)
