Atlanta Gas Light Progresses Build of Second LNG Storage Tank
08.17.2022 By Ella Keskin - NEWS

August 17, 2022 [ Storage Terminals Magazine ] – Atlanta Gas Light says the placement of its second LNG storage facility rooftop happened on August 2 at its liquified natural gas (LNG) facility in Cherokee County.

The domed roof – weighing 444 tonnes – is approximately 200 feet in diameter and 36 feet in height. The air raise of the roof took approximately four hours to complete. Construction of the inner LNG containment shell within the outer wall will begin shortly. Once complete, the new LNG tank will store an additional two billion standard cubic feet of natural gas onsite to meet Atlanta Gas Light natural gas supply needs.

Construction of the LNG storage facility has been underway since November 2021 and will be completed in phases over the next three years.

Pedro Cherry, Atlanta Gas Light president and CEO, said: “Placement of the LNG storage tank roof is a major milestone for the project, reflecting the hard work and dedication of our team as we transition this facility closer to operation.”

“This LNG project is critical natural gas infrastructure necessary to continue providing fuel to our customers safely and reliably in the decades when demand is at its highest.”

The project will allow Atlanta Gas Light to double the facility’s capacity, store gas when it is most affordable and then have access to that supply during periods of peak demand in the county and surrounding regions.

This facility is part of Atlanta Gas Light’s first-ever Integrated Capacity Development Plan (i-CDP), which was approved by the Georgia Public Service Commission in November 2021.

The i-CDP provides insight into the company’s long-range plans for initiatives that will enable it to meet increased demand and deliver superior customer service whilst continuing to serve the energy needs of the state safely and reliably.
