BoartLongyear, the world’s leading integrated exploration drilling services, equipment and performance tooling provider, has been awarded a contract on August 1, 2014 for drilling services at the Magnum NGLs (Natural Gas Liquids) Storage Projectat central Utah’s Western Energy Hub.
Magnumis building the first underground salt cavern NGLs storage facility in the Rocky Mountain region at the site, located 10 miles north of Delta.Development will include the construction of solution-mined storage caverns in a salt domeapproximately 3,000 feet below the natural surface.Initially, thefacility will featuretwo caverns each capable of storing between 1 and 2 million barrels (mmbbl) of natural gas liquids (NGLs) such as propane and butane. . . .
