FERC last week gave Petal Gas Storage the go-ahead to double the
certificated capacity of its storage facilities in Mississippi to
10.4 Bcf. Petal Gas would accomplish this by drilling, leaching and
developing a second underground salt dome storage cavern identical
to its existing cavern. The proposed storage cavern would have the
same certificated capacity as the existing cavern (5.2 Bcf), and
both would have a combined actual working gas capacity of 5.8 Bcf.
Gas could be injected into the combined storage facilities at an
average rate of 160 MMcf/d, allowing shippers to fill the working
gas capacity in 40 days. And it could be withdrawn from the two
caverns at an average rate of 640 MMcf/d, enabling shippers to pull
out their gas completely in 10 days.
