Fire Closes Pennsylvania Compressor Station


Published:

Williams Partners said its Lathrop gas-gathering compressor station near Springville, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., went off line on Thursday following a flash fire.

Williams said emergency shutdown equipment isolated and minimized the incident. Most of the damage was to the building and no workers were harmed. It said the cause of the fire was under investigation.

The station has been handling about 365 MMcfd (10 x 106 m3/day) of gas with seven compressor packages totaling 3750 bhp (2.8 MW).

Williams bought the Lathrop station from Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. in 2010 in a deal that included another compressor station and 75 miles of gathering lines.
