The underground storage of natural gas which promotes conservation thereof, which permits the building of reserves for orderly withdrawal in periods of peak demand, which makes more readily available our natural gas resources to the domestic, commercial and industrial consumers of this state, and which provides a better year-round market to the various gas fields, promotes the public interest and welfare of this state.

Therefore in the manner hereinafter provided the Commission may find and determine that the underground storage of natural gas as hereinbefore defined is in the public interest.
