That is most likely anti-freeze or some other compound to melt away the methane hydrates. Looks like that thing is also covered in barnacles.
I think that is the bottom of the "bladder" that connects from the ship to the riser where it is sucked up to the ship. That is just a guess, but it has been there all along and has been tended to periodically.
