Wingas opens Europe's largest gas storage facility

Aug 24, 1999 02:00 AM

Wingas has turned its storage facility in Rehden into Western Europe's biggest underground gas storage facility. The facility will now have a working storage capacity of 4.2 bn cm of natural gas, accounting for about a quarter of the storage capacity available in Germany.
Wingas has invested a total of $ 403 mm in the storage site. A total of seven compressors make it possible to store large volumes of natural gas at Rehden. The gas will be compressed and forced into the porous reservoir rock through 16 storage wells.
Burkhard Genge, president of Wingas said of the venture: "Extension of our underground gas storage facility in Rehden has enabled us to react even more flexibly to all the different customer's requirements that can arise in a liberalised energy market."

Wingas is a joint venture of Wintershall, a subsidiary of BASF, and Gazprom.
