Abstract : The patent relates to the mobile seafloor storage structure for storing POL (petroleum, oils, lubricants) comprising a pair of cylindrically-shaped enclosures having hemispherical-shaped end members. The two cylindrically-shaped enclosures are connected together by top, bottom and end members such that a center enclosure is formed between the pair of cylindrically-shaped enclosures. Various interconnections and related valves are utilized for moving POL, seawater, and gases from enclosure to enclosure thereby maneuvering the structure between the sea surface and the seafloor.
