Irving, TX (PRWEB) August 9, 2007
Western Pipeline Corporation stated that the compressor upgrade has been completed and is operational at the company's Washington, Indiana, facility.
The WH-12 Joy compressor is equipped with 11.0" and 7.5" cylinders run by a 250 horse power electrical motor set with variable speed drive system. It is both water and gas cooled and has a Murphy gauge panel mounted on steel skids.
A 3 phase electrical substation was installed to support the electrical requirements of the new system. Also added was a Weg 30 variable speed drive custom built for our application in Suwanee, Georgia.
Western Pipeline is in the process of increasing the size of the Amine towers to accommodate the increased production of our 25 well project currently in operations.
This new compressor will help support the booster station located in Pike County, Indiana and over 39 miles of pipeline located throughout Gibson, Knox, Pike and Daviess counties that supply natural gas to our Processing Plant.
According to Bob Jent, Western Pipeline's CEO, "Our new capacity is more than 4 x's higher than with the previous compressor which is needed with our increased production."
