COMPRESSION UPGRADE AT TEXAS PLANT HITS EMISSIONS TARGETS
Bruce Portz Western Gas Resources Denver Western Gas Resources, Denver, has installed additional compression at its Midkiff, Tex., gas plant within stringent emissions constraints on NOx, CO, and unburned hydrocarbons imposed by state and federal agencies. To satisfy regulatory ceilings, Western Gas modified older Ingersol KVS (Fig. 1) compressor engines. Emissions of the converted engines compare favorably with the performance of more contemporary units.
