HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BHE Compression Services and Project Canary are pleased to announce the CleanMachine™ compressor package has received the first-ever equipment-specific TrustWell™ Responsibly Sourced Gas certification for midstream equipment. The TrustWell™ certification has long been the recognized standard for operational excellence and environmental stewardship in upstream oil and gas operations.
“We are excited that BHE Compression Services has received this certification,” said Will Foiles, chief operating officer of Project Canary. “The company has clearly demonstrated its commitment to environmental stewardship as supply chains across all industries work to reduce emissions.”
BHE Compression Services’ CleanMachine™ design now includes Project Canary’s continuous monitoring sensors and technology, enabling CleanMachine™ to provide real-time data on raw methane emissions. These types of groundbreaking advancements reinforce BHE Compression Services as an industry leader and position the company as much more than a conventional contract compression provider.

We are leading the way in setting the new expectation for compression services using technology to eliminate and capture raw methane emissions.”
Peter Strezo, vice president technology and environmental at BHE Compression Services, added, “With full transparency on real-time performance via Project Canary’s continuous monitoring solution, as well as a third-party verification and certification process through TrustWell™, we are well-positioned to deliver results. BHE Compression Services is raising the bar for what customers expect from their compression service providers with a goal of no methane left behind!”
