Storage Facilities

Cook Inlet Natural Gas Storage Facility (Kenai, Alaska)

IVS selected to provide all of the ventilation systems engineering and equipment for the new Cook Inlet Natural Gas Storage facility in Kenai Alaska. Cook Inlet Natural Gas Storage Alaska, a joint venture between Enstar’s parent company Semco Energy and MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co., has been working through the permitting process to create a natural gas storage facility in Kenai. The facility will take in injected gas into a storage reservoir when more natural gas is being produced than consumers are using, typically in the summer. When the demand for fuel is higher than production, typically in the winter, gas can be taken out of the reservoir and supplied to customers. The schedule calls for injection to begin during the summer of 2012.
