Natural Gas Storage Project
Indiantown, Florida, USA
|Client||Floridian Natural Gas Storage Company, LLC|
|Industries||Oil & Gas|
|Services||Geotechnical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Cultural Sciences, Planning/Design/Landscape Architecture|
Floridian Natural Gas Storage Company, LLC (FGS) proposes to construct and operate natural gas storage facilities, the first of its kind in Florida, on 145 acres at the site of the former Florida Steel manufacturing facility. The site is designated as an EPA Superfund site and, although remediation is ongoing, has been declared ready for reuse by the U.S. EPA. The storage facility will be connected to the existing regional gas infrastructure by two parallel pipelines, one to receive gas and one to send out gas, both four miles long, which will be constructed to run from the storage site to interconnections with Gulfstream Natural Gas System, L.L.C. (Gulfstream) and a Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) 20-inch lateral that will provide access to the Florida Gas Transmission Company (FGT) mainline. Phase 1 will include construction of one nominal 190,000 m3 storage tank, liquefaction systems, vaporization systems, and two four-mile parallel pipelines to connect the facility with the existing interstate pipeline systems. The Phase 1 facilities will have a storage capacity of 4 billion cubic feet (Bcf), a design sendout capacity of 400 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscfd) and a design liquefaction rate of 50 MMscfd. Phase 2 will include construction of an identical tank and additional liquefaction and vaporization capability.
Golder managed the application for authorization of the project under Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), in compliance with the requirements of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Our support includes:
- Coordination with FERC
- Phase I Environmental Site Assessment
- Water use and quality studies
- Vegetation and wildlife studies
- Stormwater design
- Cultural Resource Assessment and socioeconomic studies
- Geological studies and surficial soil descriptions, including detailed geotechnical investigations to estimate subsurface stress distributions and expected deformation from various structure loads
- Seismicity studies, including a downhole seismic profile
- Land use, recreation, and aesthetics studies
- Air Construction Permit Application preparation and submittal to FDEP and baseline ambient noise monitoring
- Alternatives analysis, including site and system alternatives and variations
- Reliability and public safety studies
- Participation in open house events and public outreach
In August, 2008 FERC approved the project.
