What We Do

Our business consists of the acquisition, development, operation and commercial management of natural gas storage facilities. We currently own and operate two natural gas storage facilities located in Louisiana and Mississippi. Through our two facilities we are able to provide flexible, reliable gas storage services to customers in the Gulf Coast, Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Our customers include electric utilities, local distribution companies, pipelines, natural gas producers, LNG shippers, aggregators, marketers, and industrial and commercial end use customers.
