Conversion of LPG salt caverns to natural gas storage 'A TransGas experience'. N.G. Crossley. J. Can. Petrol. Technol., December 1998, 37(12), 37--47.

The impact of deregulation and increasing competition in the Canadian natural gas storage market is reviewed. The advantages of salt caverns for LNG storage are discussed. They include high gas delivery rates, full product recovery, environmental safety, and low construction costs. Conversion of three caverns for natural gas storage in Saskatchewan is described and 16 basic requirements are tabulated. Conversion of LPG caverns to natural gas storage provides a quick and cost-effective response to market demands. Two case histories review TransGas experiences in converting LPG salt caverns. Features of the caverns are described and illustrated.
