Midstream 101: Control rooms

Last week we learned that compressors continually pressurize natural gas in the pipelines to keep the gas moving. And while the gas (…or oil…or NGLs…or other products…) is on the move, it’s being monitored constantly. As the product moves through the various facilities and pipelines along its route to our downstream consumers, the volume, temperature … Continue reading Midstream 101: Control rooms
