Compressor stations compress and push gas from the field where it is extracted or from an LNG re-gasification import port, along transmission pipelines, to end customers, such as refineries, power stations or LNG export plants. Compressors, housed in stations located at 40- to 100-mile intervals along a pipeline, run continuously and allow gas to be rerouted into gas storage areas during periods of low demand.
