Title Potential for Additional Natural Gas Storage Capacity in the Arkoma Basin in Arkansas
Author (s) Jay Hansen, Peng Li, Ciara Mills
Date 2023
General Description

For this study, a ratio of plugged wells to producing and temporarily abandoned wells was applied to natural gas fields in the Arkoma Basin in Arkansas to identify mature, nearly depleted fields that have potential for underground natural gas storage operations. Thirteen fields were chosen for further analysis. Sixty-six wells within the chosen fields had intervals that either produced at least 5 Bcf of gas or were located within the same trap with other high-yield wells. The greatest number of wells (21) and highest available void space in a single well (20 Bcf) both occur in the Massard Field.
