The cavern storage site Peckensen is situated southeast of Salzwedel in Saxony-Anhalt. After a successful expansion project, the storage has now a working gas volume of 392 Mio. m³ in 5 storage caverns in the salt domes.

With two new compressor units, the injection rate was increased to nearly 315.000 m³/h, the max. withdrawal rate is 870.000 m³/h. With the help of two highly capacitive interconnections, the storage is well connected to the grid interconnection point Steinzu and the transport network Ontras.
