Midstream Companies Focus on Safe Operations to Meet Critical Needs

GPA Midstream Association, April 8, 2020

As people around the world continue to make major adjustments and tough decisions related to the COVID-19 crisis, GPA Midstream Association, GPSA, and their member companies are tirelessly working to ensure that midstream employees are taking appropriate precautions and following strict COVID-19 protocols so that midstream operations, considered critical infrastructure by the Department of Homeland Security, are not interrupted.

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," said 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.

GPA Midstream is actively working and coordinating with our federal agency and state agency partners to ensure our 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.”
