The rise in gas prices, accelerated by the war in Ukraine, has exposed the volatility of the energy market and Europe’s need to achieve independence from external supplies from politically sensitive areas. Reaching such independence, while simultaneously complying with climate agreements, will inevitably require a substantial expansion of subsurface energy and byproducts storage options.
