Title:   Historical Overview of the Gas Compression Infrastructure in the United States: Current Challenges & How We Got There (2006)
Author:   William A. Couch & Thomas W. Burgett – El Paso Pipeline Group
Summary:   This short course will outline the evolution of gas compression equipment in North America beginning with the slow-speed horizontal integral engines up through the modern high-speed separable gas engines and compressors. Additionally, we will outline the evolution of gas turbines and centrifugal compressors from the introduction of the GE Frame 3 gas turbines in the early 50’s to the latest industrial and aeroderivative gas turbines and centrifugal compressors. Along with this compression equipment overview, we will also discuss outside forces and internal changes that have changed the face of our industry, including environmental requirements, deregulation of the gas industry, reduction in the “take or pay” contracts, increased throughput, availability of repair parts and major components, OEM orphaned engines, and increased fuel costs.
