A compressor station is a facility that aids in the natural gas transmission process from one site to another. Natural gas must be compressed at intervals of 40 to 100 miles while being delivered through a gas pipeline. More compressor stations will be required due to frequent elevation changes and an increase in the number of gas wells.
The compressor station, also known as a pumping station, is the "engine" that drives a natural gas pipeline across vast distances. The station compresses the gas (raising its pressure) to provide energy to transport it through the pipeline, as the name indicates. A motor powered by some of the natural gas vented from the pipeline drives the compressor.
