Midstream infrastructure plays a crucial role in the oil and gas industry. It encompasses activities including transportation, logistics, storage, gathering, and processing. Midstream activities serve the vital purpose of helping optimize the value of oil and gas production that lie at the forefront of the global energy sector.
Vista has a diverse portfolio of midstream projects, ranging from Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) units to complex process optimizations. We have successfully executed engineering and design projects for a variety of midstream operators in areas including tankage, pumping, transport lines, measurement, and loading stations. These projects range in size from small equipment installations and replacements to major terminal upgrades. All of Vista’s designs focus on safety, constructability, maintainability, and operability.
Our midstream capabilities include:
Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) Units
LACT units are responsible for accurately measuring the volume of oil to ensure its transfer from a leased entity to a pipeline. They take factors like temperature and Basic Sediment and Water (BS&W) to gauge both the quantity and quality of the oil.
Truck and Rail Loading and Unloading Stations
Transportation is integral to midstream services. Cost-effective loading and unloading facilities can reduce transportation costs and help ensure a viable connection to the market. Vista capabilities include engineering design for both truck and rail loading facilities.
Tankage, Pumping Equipment, Tie-Ins, and Utilities
Engineering design capabilities include brownfield projects that ensure tankage and pumping equipment, tie-ins, and utilities are seamlessly integrated into existing facilities.
Terminal Upgrades and Revamps
Terminal upgrades and revamps are crucial for the optimal maintenance of oil and gas facilities.
Process Troubleshooting and Optimization
Vista offers end-to-end midstream infrastructure solutions that include process troubleshooting mechanisms and optimization methods for improved facility maintenance. We also focus on employing next-generation processes that have the capacity to consistently and reliably produce high-quality advanced fuel.
