Location:

  • Finding an existing and unused cavern is cost-effective.  Such caverns are typically used for Natural Gas, Liquid Oil, or Hydrogen storage.

  • Best when the cavern is located near the Renewable Energy site.

  • Brine well would be necessary.  Or sell brine to salt or chemical companies.

Depth:

  • Max Pressure (PSIG) = 0.85 x depth of casing shoe (ft)

  • Min Pressure (PSIG) = 0.30 x depth of casing shoe(ft)
