West Unionville Storage Field a Case History of Gas Migration
The history of the West Unionville Storage Field illustrates the mechanism of lateral gas migration from a storage reservoir to a gas production field. The reservoir study together with the gas loss calculations are detailed. Also, the current and future use of the storage field is discussed.
The West Unionville story establishes why the exact geology of, not only the storage reservoir, but the area surrounding the storage field must be clearly identified. It demonstrates how a reservoir with lateral migration may be restored for storage service with a well defined injection/withdrawal pattern and reservoir monitoring program.
