The growing gas market and the increasing ratio of imported gas to gas produced within a country requires an expanded capacity for buffer gas storage to compensate for differences between constant import gas flow and seasonal variances in consumption.

For economical operation of the gas storage facility and for moving extensive quantities of gas, high operating flexibility as well as high availability and reliability of gas compression equipment are required.

This paper will report on an underground gas storage project and indicate specific objectives for the project in reservoir engineering, gas compression and free-flow withdrawal duties. It will also deal with the sizing and selection of gas turbine driven centrifugal compressor sets, including the required station equipment.

Finally, operating experience will be discussed.
