Introducing New Service Offering - Natural Gas Consulting

CTI Engineers, Inc. is proud to announce the introduction of our new Natural Gas Service offering natural gas consulting engineering to our clients and customers.

With more than 30 years of engineering leadership and expertise primarily focused on water and earth sciences, we are excited to add natural gas engineering to our growing range of service offerings. Today’s communities face an increasing number of challenges due to growing demand for reliable utility services and the complexity of efficiently delivering those services.

At CTI, we measure success in terms of quality solutions to today’s challenges; and expanding our services into natural gas engineering allows us to further integrate with our customers, leverage more collective knowledge, and provide more of the important solutions that community utilities need to meet their diverse challenges.

Tackling Service Challenges

Natural gas provides efficient and reliable energy to meet the needs of residential and commercial customers across the country. The goal of natural gas producers, transporters, and distributors is to seamlessly deliver that energy so their customers can focus on life and business, not energy. However, natural gas service providers are experiencing major challenges in providing these services due to:

  • Growing demand
  • Aging infrastructure
  • Increasing costs
  • Regulatory oversight
  • Expanding engineering complexity
  • Safety concerns
  • Environmental responsibility

The magnitude of these challenges is increasing, and their scope is constantly evolving. Natural gas service providers need knowledgeable, focused professionals who have the leadership and expertise to perform as an extension of their team when it comes to proactively tackling the growing complexity of these engineering challenges.

Leading the Team

To meet this growing demand, CTI has added Rob Napper to the team, who brings more than 18 years of natural gas engineering and project management experience. He has been the lead engineer and project manager in the design of various types of natural gas distribution, midstream, and transmission projects. His projects include cross-country pipelines, compressor stations, storage fields, gathering systems, liquids handling, well pad design, and more. Rob is an abstract problem solver whose specialty is hearing the concerns and needs of his clients and developing a clear path towards the best solution.
