CenterPoint Energy's competitive business, Mobile Energy Solutions™ (MES), recently provided natural gas to three towns in the northern portion of New Mexico, while the natural gas pipeline that serves the area was out of service for planned maintenance.
"We consulted with the customer and proposed an efficient solution to prevent service interruption by using our skilled personnel and specialised equipment," said James Hulse, director of CenterPoint Energy Intrastate Pipelines (CEIP) and MES for CenterPoint Energy. "We were pleased to safely provide portable natural gas supply to ensure residents were not impacted during the planned pipeline outage."
CenterPoint Energy and the pipeline operator shared the primary objective of safe and impeccable customer service. MES collaborated with first responders and local government officials, including the city, fire, and police departments, and State Highway Patrol to plan and safely execute the project.
25 homes were served individually using small 2000 ft3 farm tap trailers, three sites were served with CNG tube trailers and one site with high pressure, high flow, LNG. MES mobilised purpose-built equipment to every site and managed the logistics and supply for 18 LNG tankers. "This was likely, the most complex mobile natural gas project ever performed," added Hulse.
