Natural gas storage planned for Alaska utilities

Posted: Friday, September 03, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Utilities hope a new natural gas storage facility near the mouth of the Kenai River will keep Southcentral Alaska homes warm on the coldest winter days.

KTUU reports that Enstar of Anchorage and other utilities are part of a $180 million venture called Cook Inlet Natural Gas Storage Alaska.

It updated lawmakers Wednesday on plans to pump excess gas into a depleted reservoir when supplies are strong in warm months and pump it out when demand peaks in winter.
