Transmission Operations & Engineering

 Midstream

 

016 The Midstream Interest Group focus is the link between the exploration and production of natural gas and the delivery of its components to long haul pipelines and end-use markets. Compression, right of way issues, measurement, safety, gas quality, pipeline construction and maintenance and regulatory compliance are part of our discussions. We liaise with a number of other SGA Interest Groups.  

 

This task force supports the Pipeline Construction and Operations, & Maintenance Committee at Round Table/Breakout session during the SGA Operating Conference

More Information about Committees & Interest Groups

An Interest Group is a database of gas industry professionals interested in a particular subject matter. SGA members may join as many Interest Groups as they prefer. Each Interest Group is managed by a Committee. Learn more about the Committee that manages this Interest Group by downloading their Activity Plan (above).
