Infographics: How to build an offshore oil platform

BP has shared an infographics on how to build an oil platform in six steps. The platform shown in the infographics is located in the Caspian sea, offshore Azerbaijan.


 

The West Chirag platform (image) began producing oil from one of the pre-drilled wells – J05, on 28 January, 2014 . The oil first passes through the newly installed processing facilities on the platform and then it is exported to the Sangachal Terminal via a new in-field pipeline linked to an existing 30” subsea export pipeline.

The West Chirag platform has been installed at a water depth of about 170 metres between the existing Chirag and Deepwater Gunashli platforms. The design oil capacity of the new platform is 183 thousand barrels per day.
