You get information needed to evaluate a reservoir, determine the particular requirements of the job, and design a storage facility that will operate at its full potential. Underground Gas Storage Facilities combines background information with a systematic approach for examining a specific reservoir to determine the most appropriate day-to-day method of operation. It presents a thorough discussion of topics such as estimating customer requirements, types of storage, sizing of surface facilities, and estimating deliverability. Of particular interest is the section on the economics of storage design, which examines the specific cost factors involved and presents examples to determine an economically optimum design.
