Abstract : There are two main areas of work addressed under this contract, an LP gas storage study for Fort Rucker and the evaluation of two energy conservation opportunities for Lyster Army Community Hospital. The objective of this project was to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of building and operating a liquified petroleum gas (LPG) storage facility at Fort Rucker. The primary heating fuel at Fort Rucker is natural gas; it is used in central steam plants and in central forced-air furnaces for family housing. Natural gas is purchased from the Southeast Alabama Gas District at their lowest rate. However, Fort Rucker also pays a natural gas demand charge based on the amount of natural gas used during a curtailment period, the natural gas demand is intended to be reduced as much as possible by switching the central steam plants to oil but the family housing area continues to use natural gas.
