Engineered Solutions Built for Today's Gas Processing Requirements

Since 1976, Startec's multidisciplinary team has been engineering, designing and fabricating custom Gas Processing solutions. Experts in process packaging, our team has decades of experience in natural gas liquids recovery, fractionation, compression, rotating equipment, amine sweetening, and integrated project management. With over 100,000 square feet in manufacturing on a 16-acre property, Startec can confidently manage your next project – no matter the size or complexity.



Specializing in arduous applications like H2S and heavy gases, Startec has engineered and fabricated hundreds of compression packages such as a reciprocating, rotary screw, integrally geared centrifugal, and liquid ring. We've built compression packages ranging in horsepower from 50 HP to 4000 HP, meaning no application is too large or too tough. Startec is an OEM for Frick, Ariel, Howden, and Mycom products. In addition to compression, we package pumps of all types and sizes.

Liquids Recovery

Liquids Recovery

In gas processing, every molecule matters. With over 2.5BCF of Startec-built facilities in the market, our processing systems allow you to maximize your recoveries. Our expertise includes vapour compression systems using refrigerants such as ammonia, CO2, propane, and others, absorption systems or expansion of compressed gases.

Gas Treatment and Sweetening

Gas Treatment and Sweetening

Startec provides a multitude of gas and fluid processing solutions. We design and build Amine systems, distillation towers, multiphase separators, heat recovery, and gas treating equipment.
