STORAG ETZEL has started as planned the recompletion of another gas cavern on manifold 8 in the north field of the cavern facility, which will be equipped with a so-called "straddle" to reinforce the production pipe tour.
The recompletion includes the replacement of the complete gas production string and the installation of an underground safety valve that can be controlled from above ground in accordance with the Deep Drilling Mining Ordinance in the State of Lower Saxony. In the course of this work program, a total of 28 gas caverns will be restored to their original condition over the next few years in accordance with the new general operating plan.
As the work processes have to be carried out without interruption, the work will be carried out in 24-hour operation, including weekends. The service companies involved are endeavoring to keep sources of disturbance to the surrounding area (e.g. noise, light) to a minimum.
Any disturbances and suggestions can be sent to the STORAG ETZEL citizen telephone number 04465 / 977 93 39 or by e-mail to:
can be reported.
