Capabilities

Cardinal’s high-performance gathering systems, liquids handling facilities and compressor stations offer the most cost-effective midstream solutions available in our industry.

Natural Gas & Crude Oil Gathering

Cardinal works cooperatively with our customers to design high-performance midstream solutions. Gathering systems feature hydraulically optimized design, cost-effective construction and automation for efficient operations. We also provide centralized production handling facilities.

Compression & Production Facilities

Cardinal offers centralized low-pressure compression facilities that share horsepower, improve run time and reduce fuel consumption. Cardinal also offers medium-pressure compression and dehydration facilities to deliver high-pressure natural gas to our amine treating, cryogenic processing facilities or directly to market.

Gas Processing & Treating

Cardinal’s team has proven experience in developing and operating natural gas processing and treating plants. From 2010 to 2012, Cardinal developed a substantial midstream footprint in Oklahoma’s Arkoma Woodford shale play. With three plants totaling 220 MMcfd of operated cryogenic processing capacity, Cardinal was the largest natural gas processor in the Arkoma Woodford. Our operations team has owned installed and/or operated:

  • Cryogenic processing: 20 to 200 MMcf/d
  • Propane refrigeration: 7 to 20 MMcf/d
  • Amine treating: 3.5 to 500 GPM
  • Fractionation facilities: 5,000 to 20,000 Bbls/d

Condensate Stabilization & Vapor Recovery

Cardinal is experienced in both condensate stabilization and vapor recovery solutions. We offer large centralized gathering stabilization and lease-basis vapor recovery solutions. Benefits include:

  • Improved economics through the recovery of NGL rich gas vapors
  • Enhanced condensate pricing by lowering vapor pressure
  • Reduction in flash emissions, minimizing environmental impact
