Oil Stabilizing Towers (Condensate Stabilizer)
Oil Stabilization is a heat treatment of light gravity crudes such as 45 API and higher used to remove the C5+ Hydrocarbon chains from the light ends. This “Stabilizes” the oil providing an oil product under a 12 or 9 RVP which prevents flash loss in storage and even in transport. Oil Stabilization occurs after crude treatment and upstream of storage (in the place of a Vapor recovery tower). This process can capture light end y-grade oil products that are normally lost and prevent sales docks from oil buyers requiring RVP under 9 or 12 rating.
