Kinder Morgan – St. Jo and HCP Compressor Stations

Reliable Controls performed a Process Safety Management Update for Kinder Morgan in Decatur and Columbus, Texas. Kinder Morgan owns and operates approximately 70,000 miles of pipelines and 180 terminals. Their pipelines transport natural gas, refined petroleum products, crude oil, carbon dioxide and more. Kinder Morgan is the largest natural gas transporter and largest storage operator in North America.
