Project Description

Project

Gibson Compressor Station

Location

Pennsylvania

Background

The client, a large energy company with assets across the United States, tasked EN Engineering with designing and fabricating their Gibson Compressor station control panels, programming the station’s logic controllers and operator interface, and assisting with the installation and commissioning at the facility. The Gibson Compressor station was designed and constructed in 2013-2014 and is part of a gathering system in Eastern Pennsylvania that conditions and compresses natural gas from local wellheads so it can be delivered to interstate pipelines.

Challenges

With a limited timeline to complete the design, EN Engineering had to diligently maintain a demanding project schedule to ensure timely project delivery.

Solutions

The EN Engineering team completed a detailed design package for the station control panels, procured all equipment for the control panels, and oversaw the panel fabrication process. In addition, EN Engineering completed the programming for the two programmable logic controllers responsible for maintaining the safe operation of the station and programmed the operator interface system to allow the station operator to monitor and control the facility from the control room. The team also provided on-site commissioning support to verify the functionality of all station instrumentation and control systems and assisted with the startup of the station and compressor units.
