The above will give a more in depth explanation,
It's basiclly located on the Seabed which controls the flow of oil to the surface or to land to be refined about £1.8m each.
I been involved with these for 19 years at FMC, but now they are getting more and more complex these days.
Most are going off West Africa at the moment.
