North America’s largest energy infrastructure company will expand its current operations in Cochise County in a $40 million project expected to begin next year.
After a nearly two-year search for land to build its new natural gas compressor station, Texas-based Kinder Morgan will construct the facility next to its existing Willcox Compressor Station, located on Arzberger Road.
The decision followed an extensive public outreach process, which included input from the nearby vineyards along the Willcox Bench – the company had originally wanted to build the Dragoon Compressor Station next to the Kief-Joshua Vineyard, located about half a mile from the existing station. Owner Kief Manning expressed concerns about the potential impact of the development on his crops, as well as the aesthetics of the project in a rural area.
