Oil & Gas Acoustical Survey & Modeling Project at a Glance
- Environmental Noise Control, Inc. performed a noise study & predictive noise impact model on a compressor station in Colorado, USA.
- ENC established that the compressor station did not comply with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) noise limits.
- ENC designed & installed noise mitigation during an oil & gas acoustical survey & predictive noise impact modeling project, ensuring that the compressor station complied with FERC limits.
- Custom silencer banks & ENC’s industrial permanent acoustical sound control panels were utilized in this project.
Antero Resources Corporation commissioned Environmental Noise Control, Inc. to provide a noise study for a compressor station in Colorado, USA. The assessment used predictive noise impact modeling to determine noise compliance within the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) limits.
The compressor station consisted of several compressors & vertical coolers housed in a compressor building. ENC’s predictive noise impact modeling showed that the compressor building would require noise mitigation to reduce its noise levels within FERC regulations.
Using predictive noise impact modeling & reporting, ENC could design a complete noise mitigation plan that ensured FERC noise requirement compliance, saving time & costs associated with installing “off the shelf” materials that may not have had as significant an effect on the compressor noise.
The mitigation modeled & implemented on the compressor station included ENC silencer banks on the cooling towers & their industrial permanent acoustical sound control panels to conclude the oil & gas acoustical project.
