"As always the problem is money." Indeed. Such a cool idea, though.

You are late to the party we have been discussing it already.... 😀

Afer my posts on that thread I have considered it more and I see even more problems that I mentioned mind you. If you pump airdown an oil well you wont just get air back up, even in exhausted wells there will be some oil down there so old oilwells are not compatavlbe with slat caverns as suggested by the article and will need oil processsing facitliteis to operate. The old oil platforms will not be able to do that as they are all knackered and would cost a fortune to refurb and find space to put a turbine/compressor on there not to mention the new weight totally screwing up the weigh calcs. Another renewable pipe dream not fully costed out i nthe real world, nothing new.
