This is the type of storage used for most of the strategic oil reserve created in the USA. Natural gas or petroleum also can be stored in underground caverns or aquifers at temperatures and pressures which maintain the gas in a liquefied form. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) facilities are not uncommon in many areas of the world but the additional technical problems presented by the colder storage temperatures of liquefied natural gas (LNG) have retarded the development of this type of storage. Secure storage of archival records, national treasures and essential operating records are an important use of rock caverns.

Major utility projects are an essential feature in the support of urban development and the restoring of better environmental conditions to our cities. In terms of length of utility installed, the overwhelming majority of utilities are small-diameter utilities installed by trenching in soil and in which personnel entry is not possible. Larger-diameter utilities are required later in the development of an urban area to provide increased capacity for the main branches of supply systems and to upgrade the performance of sewage systems by separating storm and sanitary sewage.

In Stockholm, the new National Archives were excavated in rock in Marieberg near the center of Stockholm. These archives are used frequently and require both a secure and a readily accessible location. A proposal has also been made by Swedish architects to house and display the Pharaoh's funeral ship underground near the pyramids. The current museum of glass and concrete has been severely criticized in Egypt and abroad as providing a poor environment for the preservation of this important artifact.
