This paper examines numerical approaches to model operation of gas storage in salt caverns. The emphasis is on taking into account the thermal exchanges between the well, the cavern, and the rock mass, as well as the modelling of the volume losses of the cavern, while keeping the model fast, simple, and operationally usable. The use of this model in the context of monitoring storage operations is illustrated.
