Abstract: Pacific Gas and Electric Companys McDonald Island Gas Storage Field has expanded ftom average daily deliverability of 200 million standard cubic feet to 1200 million standard cubic feet. The new facilities for gas gathering, processing, and controlling sixty new wells are located at two centralized stations, namely, Whisky Slough Station and Turner Cut Station. The system startup, production, and shutdown operations are fully automated using a real time process digital computer at each station. A well test program is also implemented to monitor the condition of each well. The design and construction of these two stations are based on the concepts of full automation and centralization with emphasis on system reliability and safety.
