QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Why do we need a natural gas storage facility in Florida?

With the rising cost of imported oil and the low cost of domestically produced natural gas, more heavy-duty vehicles, industrial engines, marine freighters, agricultural equipment and other motors are converted to natural gas fuel every day. When stored as a liquid, the volume of natural gas decreases by about 600%, so liquefied gas is especially useful for long-haul vehicles and in other instances when frequent refueling is inefficient or impractical.

Liquefied natural gas storage in South Florida will also provide an important back-up fuel source for Florida’s electricity generators should gas supply be interrupted by a hurricane or other unexpected curtailment.

 

Why Indiantown?

Both of Florida's natural gas supply pipelines from the Gulf Coast are nearby, allowing the gas to be delivered directly from the pipelines into storage during low-demand periods and redelivered to capacity holders when it is needed.
