AGL Has Gas Storage Available Immediately at Louisiana Facility

Natural gas utility giant AGL Resources last Tuesday said it had up to 1,100 MDth of working gas storage available to contract immediately at its Jefferson Island Storage & Hub facility near Henry Hub at Erath, LA.

The high-deliverability facility consists of two salt dome gas storage caverns with 10,000 MDth of total capacity and about 7,300 MDth of working gas capacity. It has a withdrawal capability of 720 MDth/d and average injection capacity of 240 MDth/d, Atlanta, GA-based AGL said.

The Jefferson Island Storage facility has interconnections with eight pipelines, including direct access to the Henry Hub via Sabine Pipeline, Crosstex Pipeline (formerly Louisiana Intrastate Gas pipeline), Texas Gas Transmission, Columbia Gulf Transmission, Sea Robin Pipeline, Tennessee Gas Pipeline, Gulf South Pipeline and Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America.

AGL acquired Jefferson Island Storage for $90.3 million from an American Electric Power (AEP) subsidiary in October 2004. AGL Resources' business development arm, Pivotal Energy, is handling the day-to-day operation of the facility, and is taking requests for storage and hub services.

AGL utility subsidiaries include Atlanta Gas Light; Elizabethtown Gas in New Jersey; Virginia Natural Gas in Norfolk, VA; Florida City Gas; Chattanooga Gas; and Elkton Gas in Maryland. Combined, they serve 2.2 million customers in six states.
