Optimizing the Azeri Field asset

Increasing oil and gas production is a key business driver. As a result, companies are spending more time optimizing what they have already found. BP has achieved good results using sustainable best practices and process optimization solutions. AZERI ASSET The Azeri oil and gas production asset is within the top five BP investments worldwide and is possibly one of the world’s most complex oil systems. Present offshore facilities consist of three production platforms and a gas processing platform, located in the Caspian Sea. Each production platform has oil/water separation, gas compression and gas dehydration. The gas processing platform has four parallel compression trains driven by 25-MW gas turbines, which supply high-pressure gas for reservoir pressure maintenance and gas lift for oil production. The onshore terminal has four oil-stabilization trains, oil and gas receiving facilities and a gas plant for quality control.
