This handbook is has been compiled to give readers with an interested in the oil and
gas production industry an overview of the main processes and equipment. When I
started to search for a suitable introduction to be used for new engineers, I
discovered that much of this equipment is described in standards, equipment manuals
and project documentation. But little material was found to quickly give the reader
an overview of the entire upstream area, while still preserving enough detail to let the
engineer get an appreciation of the main characteristics and design issues.,
This book is by no means a comprehensive description on the detailed design of any
part of this process, and many details have been omitted in the interest of overview. I
have included some comments on the control issues, since that is part of my own
background. For the same reason, the description will be somewhat biased toward
the offshore installations.
The material has been compiled form various online sources as well as ABB and
customer documents. I am thankful to my colleagues in the industry for providing
valuable input, in particular Erik Solbu of Norsk Hydro for the Njord process and
valuable comments. I have included many photos to give the reader an impression
what typical facilities or equipment look like. Non-ABB photo source given below
picture other pictures and illustrations are ABB.

Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID) show the process, additional
information is needed for the specification of the Process Control and Safety
Systems.

The illustration shows one typical format common format for the Norwegian
offshore industry: The Njård Separator 1 and 2 Systems Control Diagram (SCD.
Essentially, the P&ID mechanical information has been removed, and control loops
and safety interlocks drawn in with references to typical loops.
