This page provides access to data series associated with the storage of of gas.
|The Storage pages provide information on overall levels of gas in storage.|
|The Storage (Long) pages provide information on long-term gas storage. There is one long-range storage site on the national transmission system: Rough, situated off the Yorkshire coast. Rough is owned by Centrica and mainly puts gas into storage (called 'injection') in the summer and takes gas out of storage in the winter.|
|The Storage (Medium) pages provide information on medium-term gas storage. These commercially operated sites have shorter injection/withdrawal times than long-term storage so can react more quickly to demand, injecting when demand or prices are lower and withdrawing when higher.|
|The Storage (Short) pages provide information on short-term gas storage. The only short range storage site on the national transmission system (NTS) is at Avonmouth near Bristol. This onshore site stores liquefied natural gas that has been condensed from the NTS, not delivered by ship. When needed, the liquid gas is revaporised and delivered to the NTS. Short range-storage can respond quickly but has limited stock.|
|The Storage Injection pages provide information on storage injection. This tracks flows of gas into storage.|
|The Storage Withdrawal pages provide information on storage withdrawal. This tracks flows of gas out of storage.|
