In recognition of Keystone's expertise in the area of Landfill Gas (LFG) collection and processing, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Keystone as an Industry Partner in it's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP).
Founded in 1988, Keystone's roots are in oil & gas extraction and production. As renewable energy markets have presented new opportunities, Keystone has been able to leverage it's vast expertise to serve these new and developing sectors.
For the last decade, Keystone has actively been involved in offshore wind with it's innovative Inward Battered Guide Structure (IBGS) turbine foundation, which was originally designed to support offshore oil & gas production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, Keystone has provided engineering, design, and operational support to its refining clients for ethanol, bio-diesel, and cellulosic biomass-derived fuel projects.
Keystone's leap into the LFG-to-Energy market follows a similar trajectory of leveraging the company's engineering expertise in the project elements which are routinely found in traditional energy markets. As Keystone's Safety Director, Josh Thibodeaux explains, "High-Btu LFG projects require many of the same systems that Keystone regularly designs for onshore natural gas production. Piping, compression, condensate management, H2S & CO2 removal, and all the associated safety systems - those are things right in our wheel-house."
