We strive to be the regional leader in natural gas gathering and treating, providing premier services for our stakeholders through uncompromising integrity, accountability, and performance, while protecting human health and the environment.
Compression takes place in various locations throughout the system. In general, it is the process of boosting the gas pressure in a pipeline from wellhead pressure (<100 psi) to pipeline pressure (>1000 psi). By keeping the gathering system pressure low at the wellhead, more gas is able to flow from the well under its own pressure. Major compression sites include the Bondad and Coyote compressor stations. Many other, smaller compressor stations are located throughout the system in strategic locations. Compression is also done at each of the treating facilities both to aid in treatment and to boost the gas pressure to levels necessary for discharge to the pipelines.
