Default Superior 1 & 2 cylinder engine find

These are pictures from my employers oil lease. This equipment hasn't been used in a long long time but I figured some guys here might know a bunch about these and be able to tell me/us more about them. Basically there are two "power houses" and one big building. One has a complete Superior brand, single cylinder, 25 horse motor at one end and a big gear thing at the other. The other power house has the remnants of another single cylinder motor and another big gear thing at the other end. The big building has a massive two cylinder Superior motor but theres not enough room inside to have belts running something else. Plus it looks like this big two cylinder Superior has maybe a pump head on the other end of it, although one side of the "pump head" is different from the other.

These will be spread out among many posts due to the 4 picture limit

First pics of the big building massive two cylinder.

The cylinders on the end of the two cylinder engine are air compressors. It is a two stage air compressor. The single cylinder engines pumped wells by a rod line system. The rods on the gear driven eccentric go to the wells to operate pump jacks.

Could it be a natural gas compressor?
