Offshore gas platforms in the south Morecambe Bay gas field. This is the Central Processing Complex (CPP) and the following information is taken from Link
"The Central Processing Complex is a three-platform, bridge-linked complex with a flare boom tower. The three
component platforms are:
• CPP: In the centre of the complex is the Central Production Platform (CPP). The import pipelines from
the four satellite platforms terminate here, and the gas/condensate export pipeline begins at the CPP.
There are no wellheads or accommodation. It houses all the main process and utilities modules. Gas
compression and main power generation equipment are located here and the vent systems link to a flare
arm off the northern side of CPP. A bridge to DP1 is located to the east of the platform.
• AP1: Located at the western end of the complex, AP1 is the accommodation platform. It has no process
pipelines, nor any wellheads. It provides accommodation for a maximum of 174 persons. The AP1 is also
the primary control centre for all the infrastructure. Two bridges link to CPP.
• DP1: At the eastern end of the complex, DP1 is the Drilling platform. It has risers from eight wells, plus a
flexible import riser and control umbilical to Bains. Production separation takes place here and there is
also a produced water treatment unit."
