USA: natural gas storage facility

Leaf River Energy Center LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of NGS Energy LP, has received authorization to develop and operate a salt dome natural gas storage facility and the associated pipeline infrastructure. The storage facility will consist of caverns that will be created in two salt domes situated on over 400 acres in Smith and Jasper Counties, Mississippi, and, when completed, will provide up to 32Bcf of working gas capacity. The 43mi pipeline header system associated with the facility will stretch between Smith, Jasper and Clarke counties in Mississippi and interconnect with Southern Natural, Gulf South, Transco, Tennessee, Destin and the proposed Kinder Morgan Express Pipelines. This highly deliverable and flexible storage facility will be able to inject up to 1 billion cu/ft per day and withdraw up to 2.5 billion cu/ft per day across the facility and is expected to be in service by the summer of 2010.
