Capabilities

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

Natural Gas Gathering, Transmission & 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. Cardinal designs, constructs, owns and operates FERC-regulated transmission pipelines delivering directly into interstate markets. We also provide oil and condensate gathering services from the well pad to the sales destination, creating better netback opportunities and reducing truck traffic.

Compression & Midstream Facilities
Cardinal’s centralized, low-pressure compression facilities share horsepower across the gathering system, improving run times and reducing fuel consumption. Cardinal also offers well pad liquid and natural gas custody transfer and allocation measurement facilities, dehydration facilities and transmission pipeline custody transfer measurement facilities.

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 MMcf/d 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
