The new European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) reliably strengthens the supply of natural gas to Germany and Europe. It will extend over a length of some 485 kilometers, running from the landfall of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline at the Baltic Sea near Greifswald through Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg to southern Saxony and from there over the border to the Czech Republic. The large-scale pipeline project with a receiving terminal and a compressor station near Berlin is still in its planning and approval phase. Nevertheless, natural gas will already start flowing through the first string of EUGAL at the end of 2019.
Initiated by GASCADE the EUGAL project has been further developed to a co-ownership structure with other powerful European TSOs: Fluxys Deutschland GmbH, Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services GmbH and ONTRAS Gastransport GmbH. GASCADE remains in charge of planning, construction and operation of the EUGAL pipeline.
The presentation of the status of the EUGAL project by service provider GASCADE will focus on the planning and permitting requirements in Germany, the high technical and organizational challenges, e.g. for construction of the 56” pipeline including loop line, the project management and the special expertise to realize a large scale project like EUGAL within an extremely tight time frame.
