Energy Efficiencies in Operations Program
Energy Efficiency for Liquid Pipelines and Facilities
Midstream liquid pipeline companies are an integral part of the supply chain, responsible for moving oil and natural gas from the wellhead through the transportation infrastructure necessary to get fuels and feedstocks to market. This program was developed to help participating companies implement best practices that reduce energy consumption.
Program applies to interstate and intrastate liquid petroleum pipelines and facilities within the transmission and storage segments.
Participating companies will implement one or more of the following methods to reduce energy consumption: use of Drag Reduction Agents; use and installation of variable frequency drives; minimize pump recycle (unit check valve bypass); generators and equipment efficiencies practices; use of renewables for stationary equipment/power generation.
Program Reporting and Content:
The Environmental Partnership will report actions taken on an annual basis.
