We would like to extend our greatest appreciation to the individuals and teams that participated in our Making Waves outreach project with The Wave Youth Center. Through the efforts of our generous employees, we were able to provide supplies and snacks to the local youth in the community for this fall!
In addition to maintaining safe and environmentally friendly job sites, Minnesota Limited strives to make a positive, lasting impact on the neighborhoods and areas across our geographic footprint. Our community outreach program focuses on strengthening our connection with community leaders and those in need. We take pride in the partnerships we have fostered and the friendships we have made. By having a visible presence in our communities, we look to educate those individuals about our organization, our industry, and the benefits that safe and reliable infrastructure has for our nation.
Artera Services (“Artera”), one of the nation’s industry-leading providers of essential infrastructure services to the natural gas and electric industries, announces today the creation of Versiv Solutions, LLC (“Versiv”). Versiv is Artera’s newest service line and focuses on providing innovative and sustainable solutions to decrease methane emissions.
“Introducing the new Versiv team and adding a talented group of leaders to the Artera family is an inspiring time for us and the industry,” said Brian Palmer, Chief Executive Officer at Artera. “Our investment in Versiv reinforces our commitment to provide our customers with innovative solutions that help them decrease methane emissions. We are all about supporting our customers’ goals to seek sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective means to deliver essential utilities to the communities they serve.”
Versiv strives to be a trusted leader in pipeline safety and environmental solutions for the energy and natural gas industries. Today, Versiv’s primary focus is on providing cross compression services as an alternative to venting, flaring, or blowdown, which prevents the emission of natural gas into the atmosphere
Versiv utilizes specialized equipment to evacuate natural gas out of a section of pipe that needs critical repair or replacement and recycles it back into a different section of the system, minimizing the amount of methane released into the atmosphere. Ultimately, the necessary work can continue without interruption, resulting in monetary savings, emission reductions, and less disruption to surrounding communities.
“Looking ahead, natural gas system operators will rely more and more on their trusted partners to provide support and thought leadership to help them meet industry expectations. This is especially true when it comes to emissions reduction and sustainability,” stated Gina Rundo, Versiv’s Director of Pipeline Operations. “This is why our foundational cross compression services are well-positioned to help reduce the overall methane emissions resulting from critical pipeline maintenance, repair, and replacement across the United States.”
Versiv is a national provider, leveraging Artera’s vast footprint of 41 states and 130+ locations. This scale differentiates Versiv from its peers, bringing responsive and cost-effective services to our customers. Versiv has already completed several successful projects, built a strong backlog based upon high customer demand, and has new projects starting weekly, spanning Artera’s footprint.
Founded by Reuben Leines, Minnesota Limited began as a small, family-owned business in 1966 serving the natural gas distribution industry. Over the past 55 years, we have expanded into a full-service transmission pipeline and facilities contractor providing that same homegrown, family-first feel to our customers and communities.
We have completed projects on natural gas, crude oil, refined products, and hydrocarbon infrastructure. We have constructed major cross-country pipelines, pump and compressor stations, gas distribution systems, tank farms, terminal, and refinery projects, in addition to completing more than 10,000 miles of hydro-static testing and maintenance throughout the United States.
In 2020, we were acquired by Artera Services (formerly PowerTeam Services) a premier provider of innovative and sustainable infrastructure solutions for the natural gas and electric industries. Joining their team of over 9,200 employees, we aim to continue modernizing today’s critical infrastructure to serve our customers and communities.
Today, we are proud to be one of the nation’s premier transmission pipeline contractors doing business across 34 states. With a strong foundation built on our core values, we are committed to providing extraordinary customer service and delivering the highest quality product to each project.
