Compressors and compressor stations are needed to move the gas around. The size of the compressor depends on many factors, including the amount of gas that must be moved, the distance between compressor stations, the diameter of the pipe, temperature, etc.

- "Residents of the town of Pendleton are resisting National Fuel’s plan to put a 22,000 horsepower compressor in a residentially zoned area off of Beach Ridge Road.
Citing concerns about noise, pollution and quality of life reduction, residents packed Monday’s town board meeting to address the board about the issue.
Although National Fuel had been seeking to place a compressor in Pendleton as part of the company’s Northern Access 2016 project for some time, Supervisor Jim Riester said he didn’t receive an official confirmation from the fuel company until April 19."
