Underground Storage

The production of salt from a salt deposit - either domal or bedded - creates an undergound brine-filled cavity in the salt. These salt cavities, or "caverns" can be used for the safe underground storage of highly volatile gas and liquid products. In addition, these caverns are used for storing other liquids such as crude oil and other gasses such as compressed air. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is stored in salt caverns.

Texas Brine put its first cavern into liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) storage service in 1952. Since then, dozens of additional caverns have been put into a variety of storage services. Creating over 15 million barrels of cavity space a year with brine production activities, Texas Brine has the capability to meet your storage needs with existing or soon to be available caverns.

The operation of underground liquid storage requires
the prompt and timely injection or withdrawal of brine
to support product movements. Underground Storage,
LLC is uniquely qualified to provide this service.
