        U.S. Federal Strategic Petroleum Reserve | The Study of Economics

        The Federal Strategic Petroleum Reserve facility known as Big Hill is one of four crude oil storage sites run by the U.S. government that could be tapped to ease the oil crisis. The Big Hill facility has 14 underground solution-mined storage caverns that have a combined storage capacity of 160 million barrels. The site has demonstrated the capability to deliver crude at 930,000 barrels per day. The Big Hill site is connected via a 25-mile, 36-inch pipeline to the Sun Marine Terminal and the Unocal Marine Terminal at Nederland, Texas. The pipeline also interconnects with the Texaco 20-inch pipeline system in Port Arthur, Texas.
