Gazprom will launch the Volgograd underground gas storage (UGS) site on 21 November, the gas giant has told Interfax.

While the major has a similar storage site in its Kaliningrad exclave, the Volgograd UGS will be Gazprom’s first salt cavern facility on the Russian mainland.

The facility differs from other UGS sites because the caverns are structured horizontally rather than vertically.
