Natural Gas Plant Operations

Natural gas plant operators monitor and control the systems and equipment that take gas from its natural state and convert it into a useable product. Your job is to ensure that the gas produced is free of impurities. The purified gas is then separated into products such as ethane, propane, butane, and methane. You’ll also be responsible for the flow of this processed gas into the pipelines that carry it to the various industries and homes that use it for fuel. In addition, you’ll make gas flow changes to the supply system to keep pace with customer demands.

Natural gas plant operators earn above-average wages and enjoy good job security and potential to advance into supervisory or management positions.
