Abstract:

The objective of this project was to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of building and operating a liquified petroleum gas LPG storage facility at Fort Rucker. The primary heating fuel at Fort Rucker is natural gas it is used in central steam plants and in central forced-air furnaces for family housing. Natural gas is purchased from the Southeast Alabama Gas District at there lowest rate. However, Fort Rucker also pays a natural gas demand charge based on the amount of natural gas used during curtailment. During a curtailment period, the natural gas demand is intended to be reduced as much as possible by switching the central steam plants to oil but the family housing area continues to use nature gas. storage system would provide the capability of injecting a mixture of air and propane into the natural as distribution system during curtailment to reduce natural gas demand. This would result in lower gas bills throughout the year.
