An updated briefing and first hand look at the production floor of Pioneer Energy's Mobile Alkane Gas Separator (MAGS*) production facility near Denver, MAGS units under construction, and the remote operations center where MAGS units currently deployed in North Dakota and elsewhere are being controlled and monitored.


Site Visit 2

A visit to a Ward Petroleum well pad near Denver to see recently installed MAGS units in operation, including flare capture, NGL recovery and storage.


*Pioneer's MAGS is a natural gas processing system that can separate natural gas liquids from associated gas at the well, producing a dry methane stream available for onsite power generation or for conversion to CNG.
