Gas transportRECOMP Barbaira

2019 - 2020

As an actor in energy transition, Teréga has the objective of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through its BE Positif programme. Among the actions taken by Teréga to achieve that objective is the RECOMP project at the Barbaira compression station. It will enable recovery of the gas usually released into the atmosphere during decompression operations (removal of gas from installations for maintenance or safety operations). 

That gas will then be collected and reinjected into the grid.


  • Installation of an auxiliary compressor to collect the gas coming from the decompression of machines
  • Reduction of about 3000 Tonnes CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) in Teréga’s emissions


  • 2019- 2020: Studies 

  • February-May 2021: Completion of works

  • September 2021: Commissioning
