Reagan Power & Compression has been named a Tier 1 distributor and packager for Ariel Corp., marking the latest step in a long-winding journey that has transformed the Broussard, Louisiana, USA, company from a specialist in carbon dioxide (CO2) compressor packaging to a complete provider of products and services for midstream gas compression.
“We can package any Ariel, from their JGQ, which is their smallest frame, all the way to their KBB and KBZ frames,” said Joe Bellon executive vice president at Reagan. “We can package any rod load frame. With the Ariel partnership, we are still doing CO2 compressor packages, but we are also now doing more midstream pipeline compression.”
Reagan is best known as a compressor manufacturer of reciprocating and rotary gas compression systems used in CO2 gathering, injection, recycle, pipelining and vapor recovery for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) services. Changing market conditions the past few years challenged Reagan to rethink its business strategy.
