Underground storage sites for natural gas in Europe
This map represents the working gas capacities of underground storage sites in millions of m3 and the number of storage facilities in each European country.
The total working gas capacity in Europe today is around 158 billion m3, including 117 billion m3 in the UE-28. Global storage capacities are currently estimated at over 360 billion m3.
France, Germany and Italy can hold approximately 1/3 of their annual requirement in stock. These countries store natural gas in a unique logistics chain to maintain a balance between supply and demand.
