THE OFFSHORE PRODUCTION, TRANSFER, AND SHIP TRANSPORT OF THE GAS LIQUIDS FRACTION FROM CRUDE OIL OR CONDENSATE FIELDS

The paper describes a simple process for producing, storing, transferring to a carrier, and transporting natural gas liquids (NGL). The "NGL" is produced at ambient temperature under pressure, transferred to either subsea storage or pressure tanks mounted on a tethered tanker for storage, and subsequently transferred, via a single point mooring to an LPG-carrier. All these actions are carried out at ambient temperature and modest pressure, 20-25 bar. The ambient temperature "NGL" is transmuted into a low-temperature liquid at atmospheric pressure by the carrier's modified refrigeration system. Order from NSFI as No. 17094.
