HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BHE Compression Services, LLC, announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent No. 11,248,746 relating to its methane and emissions reduction system.

BHE Compression Services’ methane and emissions reduction system is used on its gas compressor package, meeting or exceeding all current EPA methane emissions rules and regulations while providing the same compression capabilities as its industry counterparts. The system reduces combustion emissions and eliminates raw and fugitive methane emissions associated with existing and future gas compressor packages.

BHE Compression Services markets its patented compressor packages under the CleanMachine® brand. The early CleanMachine units, which have been in field operation since late 2020, have achieved reductions of more than 17% in carbon dioxide equivalent, while methane intensity was reduced by 46%. The CleanMachine compressor is the first-ever midstream equipment certified by TrustWellTM for responsibly sourced gas.
