Sunbridge Energy Services Launches Natural Gas Compression Station in Permian Basin


Sunbridge Energy Services has launched a natural gas compression station in the Midland Basin with a capacity of 50 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) that is expected to come online August 31, 2022, the company said on Wednesday.

“Oil and gas producers in the Permian and nationally are quickly switching to dual fuel engines for completion, drilling and midstream operations that can run on clean fuel alternatives, like compressed natural gas, to improve emissions reductions,” Michael Hinds, CEO of Sunbridge Energy Services, said. “Though there’s an abundance of supply and demand for compressed natural gas, there lacks a virtual pipeline that can transport clean fuels to operators at the highest standards for safety and service. The launch of our new facility in the Midland Basin is our first step to fulfilling our commitment to bridging this gap.”

The strategic location of the company’s new compression station, located in the north Midland Basin, will help minimize the number of necessary trailers and trucks while ensuring on time deliveries to all customers.

In partnership with Hanwha Cimarron, the leading global manufacturer of high-pressure tanks and trailers, Sunbridge Energy Services is bringing the most advanced, patented composite tube technology — currently used by SpaceX, Shell, Nikola and others — where safety and reliability are paramount. It is the only tube of its kind that can pass the vacuum test and safely transport 100% compressed natural gas (CNG) and other clean fuels – i.e., renewable natural gas (RNG) and hydrogen (H2).

Hanwha Cimarron’s Galaxy Type IV Trailers were chosen by Sunbridge Energy Services to transport these clean fuel alternatives because of their patented pressure vessel technology, superior certifications, and accreditations. The initial delivery of 120 Galaxy Type IV Trailers, over the next 12-15 months, is part of a long-term 10-year agreement with Hanwha Cimarron.

“In partnership with Hanwha Cimarron, Sunbridge Energy Services will be the safest and most reliable option for producers in the Permian to meet their alternative fuel needs including CNG, CNG-H2 blend and pure H2,” Hinds added. “We’re excited to build from the ground up a long-lasting infrastructure and network for the delivery of environmentally clean alternative fuels for the entire Permian.”
