The development will create up to 19 purpose-built underground gas storage caverns, significantly increasing the UK’s gas storage capacity. This will help to avoid gas supply interruptions, price spikes and back up intermittent electricity generated by wind turbines.
We have statutory obligations to protect the environment and we will preserve important local species and enhance the ecology of the area.
Our project will increase the UK’s gas storage by storing gas underground in newly created salt caverns.
Safety is at the heart of everything we do. We have carried out extensive assessments, and our plans have been thoroughly reviewed by independent experts, to ensure the highest standards of safety throughout the development.
