Deep Gas 5 Updating the Roadmap for Natural Gas Storage Research Underground natural gas storage is an integral element of the nation’s energy delivery system. Road Map 9 Management of Produced Waters from Underground Gas Storage Waters produced from natural gas storage pose a challenge for treatment because they vary widely in composition and volume. High costs associated with current methods of produced water management can limit expansion of existing gas storage fields and development of new fields.
