CALGARY – Compass Compression Services Ltd. has opened its third manufacturing facility in Calgary, which will provide the company with an additional 62,000 square-feet of shop space, increasing capacity by up to 5%.

The company has introduced two new fabrication groups, a structural skid fabrication group and a vessel, spooling and piping fabrication group.  The new 16,000 square-foot shop has been dedicated to vessel, spooling and piping fabrication, while an existing 12,000 square foot shop has been allocated to skid fabrication.  This new facility and re-allocation of space provides Compass Compression with additional assembly space at their main assembly facility.

“These new groups have been developed to meet a large percentage of our fabrication requirements.” says Phil Ness, VP Operations at Compass Compression, “The additional space allows us to develop these additional capabilities to support our growth, and broaden our potential customer base.”

Compass Compression is a Calgary-based provider of custom screw, reciprocating and vane compressor packages, and custom oil-field services for oil sands customers.
