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. Beginning with the end in mind, Cardinal factors redundancy and long-term growth plans into its near-term design. Cardinal also designs, constructs, owns and operates 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. Today, we operate the Iron Horse Processing Plant, which currently has 225 MMcf/d of cryogenic processing capacity. Our operations team has owned, installed and/or operated single and multi-train cryogenic processing plants, stand-alone propane refrigeration plants, amine treating plants and even fractionation facilities.

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
