Sunbridge Energy Services launches natural gas compression station in Midland Basin

Sunbridge Energy Services has announced that its natural gas compression station, located in the Midland Basin with a capacity of 50 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), will come online 31 August 2022.

Sunbridge Energy Services was formed by an executive team with oil and gas drilling and operational experience whose mission is to provide environmentally clean, cost effective and reliable fuel alternatives to diesel for operators in the Permian Basin, helping meet their emissions reduction goals.?The strategic location of the company’s new compression station, located in the north Midland Basin, will help minimise the number of necessary trailers and trucks while ensuring on time deliveries to all customers.

“Oil and gas producers in the Permian and nationally are quickly switching to dual fuel engines for completion, drilling and midstream operations that can run on clean fuel alternatives, like compressed natural gas, to improve emissions reductions,” said Michael Hinds, CEO of Sunbridge Energy Services. “Though there’s an abundance of supply and demand for compressed natural gas, there lacks a virtual pipeline that can transport clean fuels to operators at the highest standards for safety and service. The launch of our new facility in the Midland Basin is our first step to fulfilling our commitment to bridging this gap.”

In partnership with Hanwha Cimarron, Sunbridge Energy Services is bringing advanced, patented composite tube technology – currently used by SpaceX, Shell, Nikola and others – where safety and reliability are paramount. The tube can pass the vacuum test and safely transport 100% compressed natural gas (CNG) and other clean fuels – i.e. renewable natural gas (RNG) and hydrogen (H2).

Hanwha Cimarron’s Galaxy Type IV Trailers were chosen by Sunbridge Energy Services to transport these clean fuel alternatives because of their patented pressure vessel technology, superior certifications and accreditations. The initial delivery of 120 Galaxy Type IV Trailers, over the next 12 – 15 months, is part of a long-term 10-year agreement with Hanwha Cimarron.

Hinds continued, “In partnership with Hanwha Cimarron, Sunbridge Energy Services will be the safest and most reliable option for producers in the Permian to meet their alternative fuel needs including CNG, CNG-H2 blend and pure H2. We’re excited to build from the ground up a long-lasting infrastructure and network for the delivery of environmentally clean alternative fuels for the entire Permian.”

“We’re proud to be the high-pressure storage and transportation technology solution for Sunbridge Energy Services and to support their efforts to provide oil and gas operators in the Permian Basin with clean fuel solutions to meet their ESG needs,” said David Jeon, CEO of Hanwha Cimarron. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Sunbridge long into the future.”
