Midstream Oil and Gas Sector Trends

Natural gas processing, terminals, pipelines and other forms of petroleum product transport are part of the midstream oil & gas sector.Processing these midstream operations safely, efficiently and reliably has proven to be an ongoing challenge. The current industry challenges have changed the gas processor’s focus to the improvement of existing asset reliability and efficiencies that drive capacity and throughput. Transportation is a big part of midstream activities and can include using pipelines, trucking fleets, tanker ships, and rail cars. The midstream gathering and processing sector is relatively free of commercial regulation, the movement of gas by interstate pipelines and subsequent state level distribution activities are highly regulated in the US by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
