On Monday, June 7, Dr. Steve Thomas, Midland College (MC) president, and
Brad Remley, Archrock Services vice president – Permian, announced the donation of a fully contained portable gas lift compression package with updated Centurion and EICS controls to MC Diesel Technology and Energy Technology programs.  
 
Archrock, is the leading provider of midstream natural gas contract compression services in the U.S.  Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Archrock has approximately 1,700 employees and operates in every major oil and gas producing region in the United States, including the Permian Basin.  The donation to Midland College, worth approximately $200,000, represents the company’s commitment to support education and career development in the West Texas region.
 
“We are extremely grateful to Archrock for this very generous donation,” Pete Avalos, MC program chair of Automotive, Diesel and Energy, said.  “This new equipment will enable students in our Diesel Technology and Energy Technology programs to receive hands-on training using this gas compression system, which will be a valuable tool in helping them experience ‘real-world,’ simulated skills.”
 
MC’s Diesel Technology and Energy Technology programs prepare students for careers that benefit industries within the Permian Basin.  MC offers students the chance to obtain associate degrees and industry certifications in both programs.
