How to localize an Underground Gas Storage (UGS) in a salt structure of the Fore-Sudetic Monocline in light of its geomechanical properties.
Vol. 33, no. 4 (2016), s. 699-711
The analysis of formal and legal regulations revealed that Underground Gas Storages are a favorable option in Polish conditions. The author presented a possible localization of an UGS in a salt structure of the Fore-Sudetic Monocline, indicating the advantages of the area and problems to be solved. Attention was paid to the UGS stability and complexity of this issue. The presented strength indices and rheological parameters of salt were based on laboratory experiments. In the future they can be used at the stage of designing and performing geomechanical analyses.
