When the well is ready for production, it is fitted with a 'Christmas tree' which is a large metal structure with a series of valves and fittings which controls the production rate of oil and gas. There needs to be sufficient pressure within the reservoir to drive the oil and gas to the surface, and fluid may have to be pumped back down into the reservoir to stimulate the flow. In many cases the water and gas that is extracted can be re-injected. The oil, gas, and water have to be separated and installations are equipped with an extensive range of plant to process these mixtures. At the heart of the production process is the control room, where a series of screens and monitors display the status of each well, the separators, the power generation and gas compressors. These are monitored to show the performance of each well and to calculate the volume of oil and gas produced.
