Cross Compression: Operationalizing Sustainability

Virtual, Instructor-Led


Natural Gas Operators face numerous challenges in minimizing community disruption and environmental impact during construction projects. Amidst increasing regulations, industry opposition, and investor mandates, operators are being pressured to reduce methane emissions.

By fostering innovation, the natural gas industry now has access to implement new solutions to address these challenges, one solution being cross-compression. This technology recycles natural gas back into the pipeline, reducing methane emissions compared to traditional methods.  While not necessarily completely new to the industry, this technology has been enhanced to be deployed today on diverse natural gas systems.

This session will navigate many questions operators have when introducing a new activity and/or technology in addition to exploring how this activity can be evaluated and successfully implemented on a large scale through proven practices.

Attendees will receive 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) upon completion.
