Environmental issues are becoming much more prominent for pump and compressor stations with the primary drivers being regulatory requirements and social concerns about their impact on the environment inhabited areas. In spite of the desire by some parts of our society to eliminate fossil fuel pipelines, and by inference pumping and compression, the world economy will be dependent on hydrocarbons for a considerable time, which implies that pump and compressor stations will continue to be a part of the pipeline landscape for a while yet.
