Operating 28 onshore oil and gas fields, Star Energy Group plc is the leading onshore operator in terms of fields. The company believes that with the decline in flexible gas production facilities close to market in the North Sea and Irish Sea, Great Britain (GB) will need a significant expansion in gas storage capacity. To meet these demands, Star Energy aims to construct underground gas storage (UGS) facilities by converting depleted onshore hydrocarbon reservoirs both on- and offshore GB. This paper provides an overview of the UK position with respect to UGS, Star Energy's strategy and their planned developments.
