Offshore platforms are used to explore, extract, and process oil and gas retrieved from the seabed. One vital part of these structures is the central processing platform (CPP), where the well head fluid is pumped from the wellhead platforms through the riser for processing. The most important function of the CPP is to separate the oil, gas, and water from this three-phase well head fluid, to produce the final product of the platform.
Most central processing platforms feature the following components:
1. Separation Unit
2. Gas compression and dehydration
3. Produced water conditioning
4. Sea water processing and injection system Continue reading
