Compressor Stations

Compressor stations are located along gas pipelines at regular intervals (generally every 40 to 100 miles). These compressor stations are vital to the natural gas transportation process. They compress the gas to a pre-specified pressure, which allows it to travel through the pipelines. Compressor Stations also allow the gas to be rerouted into storage areas.  PIG launchers and PIG receivers often accompany compressor stations. These are vital for the maintenance and efficiency of the pipeline. 


There is a wide variation in the pressure and temperature within a compressor station compared to other areas in a pipeline. This wide variation is also due to the type of area in which the pipeline is operating, its elevation, and the diameter of the pipeline. Because of the change in the environment, compressor stations may compress natural gas at different levels. Supply and demand can also be a factor at times in the level of compression required for the flow of natural gas.

Compressor stations frequently involves high-temperature environments. These harsh conditions make having the right parts essential for smooth operations. Warren Valve and Warren Valve Engineered products are designed to last under these conditions and serve as isolation valves for critical applications along a natural gas pipeline.
