In the current scenario, the U.S. is the largest market for oil and gas storage services. Over the past five years, unconventional oil and gas activity has pushed the nation into an unexpected position. The U.S. is now the global growth leader in crude oil production capacity. In addition, the U.S. is now a leading natural gas producer, at 65 billion cubic feet, (Bcf) per day. At the same time, unconventional activity is encouraging the growth of natural gas liquids (NGLs) production, adding over 500,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day since 2008. This has brought the total increase in liquids production capacity to 1.7 mbd since 2008. Driven by growth in U.S. natural gas, natural gas liquids, and crude oil, the past 2 years have witnessed a considerable growth in direct capital investment in terms of oil and gas infrastructure assets. As per EIA, in the US, there are around 400 underground storage facilities holding around 110 bcm of gas.
