Compressor Program for Onshore Oil and Natural Gas Transmission Operations
Informed by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program data, this program focuses on actions that reduce emissions from reciprocating and centrifugal compressors within oil and natural gas transmission operations.
Program applies to onshore gathering and boosting, natural gas processing plants, and transmission and storage facilities.
Participating companies will implement various compressor emission reduction practices, such as converting centrifugal compressor wet seals to dry seals, converting centrifugal compressor gas start to air or electric, replacing reciprocating compressor rod packings, installing “low-e” rod packings, and routing compressor emissions to a capture system for beneficial use, flare, or control device to achieve at least a 95% reduction in emissions.
Program Reporting and Content
The Environmental Partnership will report actions taken on an annual basis.
