From our founding in 1951 station construction and maintenance has been a mainstay of our business. We’ve worked for many of the major oil and gas companies. In our capacity as general contractor we have built everything from small gate stations to large and complex compressor stations with inlet and outlet piping from 4” to 42” in diameter.
Greenfield stations were typical when the country’s infrastructure was being built. Now many stations are built before the old stations are demolished. Minimizing service interruptions. Handling hazardous materials, lead and asbestos abatement, cutting and handling contaminated pipe and fittings are now a part of most station rebuild and upgrade projects. Environmental protection is an important part of any construction project and very important with station work since residential areas have built up in close proximity to station.
Often a station can be made more efficient simply by upgrading components. Examples include changing orifice meters to ultrasonic. Or replacing an old prover loop with a compact prover and automating all controls and valves.
Automation usually requires power, digital control wires and sometimes fiber optic cables. Midwestern Contractors has the capability to self perform and execute all stages of station projects completely, down to restoration and fencing.
