Platforms Harvest, Hidalgo, and Hermosa lie about ten miles southwest of Point Arguello.  Oil and natural gas are separated and treated on each platform, then the oil from Harvest and Hidalgo is sent by pipeline to Hermosa.  From Hermosa, the oil is shipped onshore to the Gaviota Oil Heating Facility.  The natural gas is used on each platform for fuel or reinjected.  At the Gaviota Oil Heating Facility, the oil is heated then shipped off-site by pipeline.
