April 9, 2020 By    

The GPA Midstream Association, GPSA and their member companies are working to ensure that midstream employees are taking appropriate precautions and following COVID-19 protocols so that midstream operations, considered critical infrastructure by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, are not interrupted, the groups say.

“Companies in energy’s midstream sector transform raw natural gas into valuable products that other industries can use, and that goes well beyond natural gas that people use in their homes and businesses for energy,” says GPA Midstream President and CEO Joel Moxley. “Several components of health care and hygiene products wouldn’t exist without natural gas and natural gas liquids, so we’re all stepping up to ensure that midstream can help meet those and many other critical needs during this global pandemic.”

Moxley says GPA Midstream is working and coordinating with its federal agency and state agency partners to ensure members are aware of the latest guidance and statements regarding activities surrounding the coronavirus.

“Both associations and our members will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure our employees remain safe and our operations remain reliable,” he adds.

The GPA Midstream Association represents more than 80 corporate members of all sizes. Members are engaged in the gathering and processing of natural gas into saleable pipeline gas. As the primary advocates for the midstream industry, the association says it enhances the viability of natural gas, natural gas liquids and crude oil through research, technical, environmental, safety and advocacy activities.

GPSA is GPA Midstream’s affiliated association representing more than 400 companies engaged in meeting the service and supply needs of the midstream industry. An elected board of directors establishes policies and directs GPSA activities. The association shares a small staff within GPA Midstream’s office in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
