DCP Midstream earned the award for a project that replaced six integral compression units with three high speed separable compression units at one of its facilities. The replacement with the more efficient units resulted in multiple benefits, including efficiency improvements in use of fuel, and machinery and manpower, while consistently delivering production to end-users.
ONEOK earned the 2019 honor for an energy load shedding program that was implemented to reduce energy consumption across its operating system.
