DOE to establish Northeastern gasoline reserve at 2 sites
Oil & Gas Journal
The US Department of Energy will establish a Northeastern gasoline reserve at two locations near New York Harbor and in northern New England to provide short-term relief during supply disruptions, U.S. Energy Sec. Ernest J. Moniz reported. The reserves, which will hold 500,000 bbl each, are part of the Obama administration’s response to infrastructure problems following Superstorm Sandy in 2012. It will complement the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve, a 1 million bbl supply which was tapped for the first time to supply first responders and run emergency generators following Sandy.
