Midland Resource Recovery (MRR) is the leading provider of services and products relating to the odorization of gas, including pipeline conditioning or pickling.
Pipeline pickling is the process of conditioning a new gas pipeline before putting it into service. In new gas lines, it is common to experience odor fade in gas as the natural gas odorant reacts with rust and mill scale inside new steel pipes, thereby producing less odorous compounds. The process of conditioning the line ensures the safe delivery of odorized gas to the end users.
As the industry experts, MRR designs a pickling strategy for each site’s requirements using state-of-the-art tools and the industry’s best practices.
Proper pipeline conditioning prevents odor fade, so odorant remains at the correct levels minimizing the concerns of under-odorization and false leak-call complaints due to over-odorization. Whenever technically possible we design the process to enable gas to be sold rather than flared to the atmosphere.
The MRR pickling procedures ensure the highest standards of safety.
