Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

welcome at the IGU Storage Committee Database portal. The data on UGS facilities were collected during 2012-2015 triennium and provide an overview of UGS status and its outlook. We would like to use this opportunity and thank to all gas companies and association which contributed with the data for this portal.

Storage provides general benefits for the entire gas infrastructure, not only for balancing of gas grids but it also helps the final customers to get their gas in efficient, reliable and secured way. The UGS Database SG has been established for the first time as a part of the International Gas Union Triennium work programme 2000-2003 as Basic Activity and since then, it provides valuable summary of UGS activities worldwide. The study has been constantly improved over trienniums and is complemented by below mentioned additional deliverables
After registration selected data are available; however, detailed data including their exports are available only to members of IGU Storage Committee and contributors.

The work of WOC2 during the 2015-2018 triennium is supported by three study-groups:
  1. Study group SG2.1 (led by Ladislav Goryl, Slovakia): Maintaining an active database on UGS in operation and UGS projects worldwide
  2. Study group SG2.2 (led by Fabien Favret, France): Defining best practices in UGS operations
  3. Study group SG2.3 (led by John W. Heer USA): Operating UGS in today's gas markets that includes support for renewable energy and grid balancing, the utilization of storage to reduce flaring and support of new LNG projects
