In the wake of gas compression offshore the problem of contamination of Seal Oil and Lube Oil systems by the process gas has posed particular problems. These difficulties stem chiefly from the uniqueness of the offshore situation, viz.: The inability to “waste” contaminated seals return because of an uncertain supply situation (oil inventory bunkered by boat) and the twin constraints of weight space restrictions imposed by offshore design. “In situ” treatment of relatively large volumes of contaminated Lube Oil and Seal Oil on offshore platforms is possible using the method described in this paper.
