Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2012 -- The scope of the underground gas storage industry in the US has increased due to the increased trading of natural gas and the commercial production of natural gas from shale plays. The increased trading of natural gas has given impetus to the development of salt cavern type storage sites, as these sites allow faster injections and withdrawals of natural gas than other types of storage facilities. Increased shale gas production in the country has resulted in massive pipeline capacity expansion plans, which will spur the development of the underground gas storage industry. The increased trading of natural gas is also expected to decrease the relevance of the depleted oil and gas field type sites, which accounted for approximately 82.6% of the total working gas capacity in 2011.
