In general, LDCs continue to utilize most of their market area storage for seasonal baseload and peaking service. The key objectives for LDCs in eval­uating the use of storage are supply security, peak-day coverage, and cost minimization. Ownership of the storage gas, proximity to points of con­sumption, and minimization of pipeline demand charges impact the […]

Liquid Natural Gas

Liquid natural gas (LNG) facilities provide delivery capacity during peak periods when market demand exceeds pipeline deliverability (Figure 8.5). LNG storage tanks possess a number of advantages over underground stor­age. Natural gas as a liquid at approximately -163°C (-260°F) occupies about FIGURE 8.5 Gas storage field surface facilities. 1/600 of the space of underground storage […]
