Skids are prefabricated pressure-reducing stations designed to the customer’s specifications, then built to order. Skids reduce overall costs and include components such as filters, slam-shuts, heaters, and meters.
- City Gate / Transmission / Distribution Stations
- Commercial/ Industrial Service
- Customized Stations
High-pressure transmission pipelines move the gas from the production company’s cleaning plants to gas distribution companies for sale to consumers. Regulators control the high-pressure gas as it moves along the pipeline. At city gate stations and farm taps, regulators reduce the pipeline gas pressure to distribution pressure. To provide a constant, measurable gas pressure, service regulators control the gas pressure before it enters the customer’s residence or building.
Commercial applications, such as restaurants and office buildings, use natural gas for heating and cooling. For industrial applications, natural gas is used as a feedstock for making chemicals, such as anhydrous ammonia, and as a fuel for boilers and furnaces.
