The Castor Project is a submarine natural gas storage facility able to contain 1,3 Billion cubic meters of gas: 3 months consumption of the Spanish region of Valencia.
The plant facilities take the gas from the general gas grid for storage in the submarine underground. To do so, the gas is transferred via a gas pipeline approximately 30 km long, mostly running under the sea, which connects the Ignacio Pérez land plant to the offshore platform located 22 km offshore.
When the gas system requires it, these facilities will be able to return gas from the storage in the same conditions as it was received through the same submarine gas pipeline.
The Castor project is the most important investment made by the Spanish gas system to guarantee supply and price stability for the future.
