Safeguarding continued operations at a midstream Gas Processing facility (CS165)


The operating partner in a midstream joint venture was concerned about rail logistics at a plant commissioned in 2013. Management recognized that the organization was not sufficiently experienced in dealing with rail operations and, with rail accounting for 80% of
