Aquifers account for about 4% of gas storage capacity nationwide, with most in the Midwest.

Aquifers are permeable rock formations that contain natural, underground sources of water of varying quality and quantity. They can be converted for gas storage by injecting gas at high pressures, with both water and the rock overlay serving as containment. 

Because aquifer storage facilities are permeable, natural gas can escape and potentially pollute groundwater.
