We supply a detailed proof of the result by P.S. Green and T. H$\ddot{\text{u}}$bsch that all complete intersection Calabi--Yau 3-folds in product of projective spaces are connected through projective conifold transitions (known as the standard web). We also introduce a subclass of small transitions which we call \emph{primitive} small transitions and study such subclass. More precisely, given a small projective resolution $\pi : \widehat{X} \rightarrow X$ of a Calabi--Yau 3-fold $X$, we show that if the natural closed immersion $\Def(\widehat{X}) \hookrightarrow \Def(X)$ is an isomorphism then $X$ has only ODPs as singularities.
