Sample text

Because of the low deliverability of these primary storage facilities, the amount of working gas in storage has become a leading indicator of short-term natural gas prices, especially during the later half of a heating season when stock levels—and thus deliverability—make the market more susceptible to volatility in a cold snap. Unfortunately, the increasing demand from natural gas–fired power facilities (mostly during the summer) is putting stress on this historical pattern and affecting the seasonal demand injection/withdrawal schedule.

An interesting point is that although storage facilities need wholesale markets to reach their full values, wholesale markets in turn need storage facilities to operate properly and facilitate lower enduse costs and additional customer choices. As the electric power industry finds itself in the midst of its own fundamental change, significant lessons can be learned from these other energy markets in how storage can be usefully applied. However, because electricity is not simply a commodity but a service where moment-tomoment quality distinctions are important, there are real applications for storage in all three power market segments: wholesale, transmission and distribution, and retail.

Deliverability. A measure of the amount of natural gas that can be withdrawn from a storage facility daily. The deliverability of a given storage facility is variable and depends on factors such as the pressure within the reservoir, compression capability of the reservoir, and so forth. In general, a facility’s deliverability rate varies directly with the total amount of natural gas in the reservoir; it is at its highest when the reservoir is full and declines steadily as working natural gas is withdrawn.
