The safest way to store natural gas is through naturally occuring underground geologic formations. Three primary types of natural gas storage include:
1. Salt dome caverns
3. Depleted gas reservoirs
The Black Bayou salt domes were formed when naturally occurring salt deposits filtered up through sedimentary layers to form a massive dome-like structure. The walls of the salt dome are surprisingly strong (comparable to steel) and very resistant to deterioration.
