The Real World Hum - Natural Gas Pipelines and Infrastructure

Do natural gas compressors emit low frequency noise ?

Higher natural gas demand for electricity generation accounted for nearly all the annual growth. The faster-than-expected phase-out of coal power plants boosted demand in the electricity generation sector. AER  - Natural Gas Demand

Low Frequency Noise generated by Natural Gas Pipelines and Infrastructure

F-9204 Gas Compressor Industry Noise Regulation and Control Review Handbook
Prepared for: The INGAA Foundation. Inc. May 1992

Reciprocating compressors exhibited destructive low frequency pressure pulsations and noise.
 In most cases, it is essential to use a reactive inlet compressor silencer to dissipate the pulse energy.
