NEL & EUGAL

Supply backbones into Germany and Europe

The North European Gas Pipeline (NEL) and the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) under construction accommodate downstream gas flows from the Nord Stream pipelines bringing Russian natural gas through the Baltic Sea to Europe. They allow additional volumes of gas from Siberia to be shipped into Germany and through their interconnections unlock these volumes for the surrounding markets as well.
