DTE has extensive experience in the engineering design, construction and operation of gathering pipes and processing facilities that meet the most stringent safety and reliability standards. Our business philosophy is simple: Meeting our customer needs is our #1 priority. This includes engaging early with the producer(s) to determine the optimal design and build-out schedule at a competitive price. Being unencumbered by upstream production commitments helps us make our producers a top priority.
ROLE OF GAS GATHERING
Gas gathering is the first connection from the well head to facilities where natural gas is compressed and dehydrated in preparation for delivery into intrastate or interstate natural gas pipelines. Gathering infrastructure buildout is highly coordinated with producer’s drilling activities. Most gathering lines are small diameter pipes located in minimally populated areas. One of our highest priorities is to be good stewards of the environment and operate the safest pipeline system in North America.
