Proposed Design and Implementation

Economies of scale generated through location, ease of development, and industry need highlight the proposed storage hub.


AEIS is constructing a world-class hub with storage capabilities of over 100+ million MMbls. The AEIS hub will center upon hollowed-out caverns engineered to store NGL’s, which are a high-cost derivative from traditional natural gas that generally take the form of ethane, butane, propane, and liquefied petroleum gas, as well as hydrogen, ammonia, and carbon sequestration.  The Appalachian region and a greater area around it have generally been dependent on storage outside the region to satisfy peak season NGL demand. The proposed NGL storage hub will be able to provide access to feed on demand, as well as having the added value of being located within 700 miles of 70% of domestic users, thereby promoting energy independence for the region and throughout the United States of America.

Economies of scale generated through location, ease of development, and industry need highlight the proposed storage hub. The AEIS site location provides perfect access to all prerequisite criteria applied when determining the viability of a project this size. Criteria that includes industry & market demand, pipelines, highways, waterways and perhaps most importantly, specific geology. There appears to be strong governmental support tied to an Appalachian NGL storage hub as proposed by AEIS.


AEIS owns the rights to 23,000 strategically located Appalachian basin acres. These large contiguous acreage blocks are ready for development. Cavern construction will be done through mined hard rock, an effective and less environmentally intrusive storage option. Strategic industry connections with the world’s preeminent cavern developers, civil engineers, as well as the support of storage hub leaders have been developed. With title, legal & engineering established – our R&D is ready to be converted to commercialization.

The AEIS position is enhanced as the acreage intended to be developed has been Strip Mined and included in a Qualified Opportunity Zone. A secondary option available for storage includes partially-depleted “shallow” geologic formations.  Caverns in these formations are ideal for storing natural gas & the sequestration of CO2. AEIS’s stacked storage options support a diverse range of product classifications.
