Full Description

Provides basic guidance on the operation of solution-mined underground hydrocarbon liquid or liquefied petroleum gas storage facilities. This document is intended for first-time cavern engineers or supervisors, but would be valuable to those experienced in cavern operation. This recommended practice is based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of geologists,engineers, and other personnel in the petroleum industry. All aspects of solution-mined underground storage operation, including cavern hydraulics, brine facilities, wellhead and hanging strings, and cavern testing are covered. Users of this guide are reminded that no publication of this type can be complete, nor can any written document be substituted for effective site-specific operating procedures.

Does not apply to caverns used for natural gas storage, waste disposal purposes, caverns which are mechanicaly mined, depleted petroleum reserve cavities, or other underground storage systems which are not solution-mined.
