The first two caverns of storage facility Zuidwending have now been filled with gas, a process which started about 100 days ago. Filling the third cavern got off to a smooth start on Wednesday 21 July, fully according to plan. The fourth cavern will be filled with gas from 29 July onwards. All the caverns should be filled at the end of the year, by which time the gas installation, which was already mechanically complete at the end of June, will also have been thoroughly tested. The storage facility will be operational in January 2011.
On May 20, 2014 Gasunie Zuidwending changed its company name to EnergyStock. This news item was posted by EnergyStock’s predecessor Gasunie Zuidwending before the name change.
