A national Natural Gas Storage Work Group led by states from across the country, the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) and GWPC announced it has begun collecting pertinent information from participating states to proactively aid in progressing state natural gas storage programs and addressing regulatory challenges.
The work group, which was formed last month, is an example of states working together to address common issues.
The states will review the data collected in order to: proactively address natural gas storage facilities and state regulations, complement the differing databases to the greatest extent possible, and recognize aging infrastructure concerns, while identifying technological advancements and establishing proper and consistent operating procedures.
The work group will provide an update on data collected and the future direction of the group at the IOGCC Annual Business Meeting in Denver, Colo., this May. Those interested can view the agenda on the IOGCC Web site: iogcc.ok.gov/denver.
