Risk glossary



The rate at which gas can be supplied from a reservoir – such as salt cavity storage – in a given period. In a salt cavity storage facility, for example, the rate would depend on a number of factors, including reservoir pressure, reservoir rock characteristics and withdrawal facilities such as pipeline capacity. The term is also used for the volume of gas that a field, pipeline, well, storage or distribution system can supply in a single 24-hour period.
