Eastern Shale Surge Stops Storage

Steady growth seen on Gulf Coast, West


Published:

Energy Information Administration (EIA) data show no new gas storage projects were built last year in the Eastern U.S., reflecting the surplus of Marcellus shale production capacity there.

EIA said additional gas storage capacity – which requires compressors for injection – increased 2% in 2013, led by strong gains in salt-cavern storage projects in the Gulf Coast producing region and nonsalt storage fields in the West.

It said the 2013 data reflects a long-term trend in those regions. For the rolling five-year period ending November 2013, salt capacity in the producing region increased 6.5% to 395 Bcf (11.1 x 109 m3) while storage in the West increased 4.7% to 645 Bcf (18.2 x 109 m3), compared to the five-year period ending November 2012.

Also, EIA said most of the proposed storage projects are in the producing and western regions and completion of those facilities in 2014 could increase design capacity by 63 Bcf (1.8 x 109 m3).
