Recovering waste heat and generating electricity from the hot exhaust gas of gas turbines located at pipeline compressor stations are seen as a way to promote increased energy efficiency and reduce green house gas emissions. Pipeline companies with facilities in the United States, in concert with the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA), have considered ways of expediting the development process for compressor waste heat recovery projects. As a result of those considerations, a number of pipeline companies have agreed to identify, on a voluntary basis, gas turbine compressor stations on their systems that:
Gas Turbine Compressor Stations
The following Gas Transmission Northwest gas turbine compressor stations meet the dual requirements of having a total gas turbine capacity of at least 15,000 hp and operating 5,250 hours or more per year based upon the previous years operational data:
