Stringent environmental constraints are usually associated with or applied to the siting and installation of new pipeline facilities. This has resulted in the dedication of a significant portion of the design effort and ultimate cost of the facility to the mitigation of these environmental concerns. This paper describes how a compressor station can be designed and built such that stringent silencing requirements can be satisfied. The paper also references specific aspects of design that were successfully applied to the Parkway Compressor Station, Canada.
