Excavation of 1M barrel underground cavern for storage of liquid butane.

In 2011 Thyssen Mining was selected to complete an underground excavation to store liquid butane, with capacity to store 1 Million barrels. After completing this excavation under budget and before schedule, Thyssen Mining was then chosen to excavate a second butane storage cavern with a capacity of 1.4 Million barrels.
