The Energy Web Atlas’ US Gas Processing Plant map is a comprehensive source of data for hundreds of natural gas facilities in the US. The web-based platform contains detailed information—including regularly updated direct contact details for key personnel—for more than 500 gas processing plants across the nation. The map also equips users with facility data for more than 400 natural gas underground storage locations, and 58 natural gas market hubs.
The EWA’s gas plant map and data is an evolution of Hydrocarbon Processing’s US Gas Processing Plant Directory, which began tracking plant data in 2014. In its new web-based platform, users can leverage up-to-date gas plant project/facility data (including plant type/flow, BTU content, infrastructure, storage capacity, plant status and ownership), export data and create custom reports. The map also allows subscribers to zoom from a national overview to state-level and county-level detail for purposes of regional evaluation.

Natural-gas processing is a complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas. Natural-gas processing begins at the well head. The composition of the raw natural gas extracted from producing wells depends on the type, depth, and location of the underground deposit and the geology of the area. Oil and natural gas are often found together in the same reservoir. The natural gas produced from oil wells is generally classified as associated-dissolved, meaning that the natural gas is associated with or dissolved in crude oil. Natural gas production absent any association with crude oil is classified as “non-associated.” In 2009, 89 percent of U.S. wellhead production of natural gas was non-associated.
Natural-gas processing plants purify raw natural gas by removing common contaminants such as water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Some of the substances which contaminate natural gas have economic value and are further processed or sold. A fully operational plant delivers pipeline-quality dry natural gas that can be used as fuel by residential, commercial and industrial consumers.
