Führendes Knowhow in allen Untertagetechnologien
Because of its convenient location near the Dutch border, the natural gas field Uelsen was recommended for the expansion as natural gas storage facility after long years of production.
In 2008, the storage has been extended to a seventh well. Today, the porous sandstones of the geological formation of the Triassic (red sandstone) are opened up with seven wells. With a working gas volume of 860 Mio. m3 Uelsen is the largest pore storage Storengy in Germany.
