Compass Compression Plans Expansion

New shop will double fabrication capacity


Published:

Compass Compression Services Ltd. and Compass Compression Solutions Inc. will begin construction in July on a 75,000 sq.ft. (6970 m2) plant in Calgary’s Southeast Frontier Industrial Park.

When the building is completed in the second quarter of 2015, Compass Compression will have 125,000 sq.ft. (11,600 m2) of gas compression fabrication capacity.

“As the industry moves toward a higher volume of large horsepower compressor packages, we have been shop constrained,” said President John Forgeron.

He said the expansion will create space for a large horsepower shop and free existing space to grow the company’s vapor recovery unit and small horsepower compression businesses.

Compass offers standard and custom screw, reciprocating and vane and compressor packages between 5 and 8000 hp (3.7 and 5965 kW). It also provides field services, large horsepower compressor package rentals and retrofits.
