The aim of this study is to supply the variable gas demand from an underground gas storage reservoir during heating season by an optimal selection of production rates. Because of the interaction of many influences, parameters, and previous decisions, determination of production rates becomes so involved that the manager can no longer use intuitive judgment. The objective, therefore, is to reach an optimum decision by applying the linear programming method in problem optimization.
