The planned de-odorisation plant is part of a flow reversal project that will allow natural gas to be shipped on the TENP pipeline in a south-north direction under certain conditions. It will thus make a decisive contribution to enhancing security of supply in Germany and north-western Europe, as it will increase flexibility in gas transmission to Germany via Switzerland and indirectly via Italy and France.

The de-odorisation plant will treat the gas coming from abroad to comply with regulatory requirements for the German pipeline network.

The Trans Europe Natural Gas Pipeline (TENP) is an important European north-south link for the transmission of natural gas. It consists of two parallel high-pressure gas pipelines and runs about 500 kilometres from the German-Dutch border to the German-Swiss border. The pipeline is owned by TENP GmbH & Co. KG, in which Open Grid Europe GmbH holds 51 percent and Fluxys TENP GmbH 49 percent. The capacities of the TENP pipeline are marketed by Open Grid Europe GmbH and Fluxys TENP GmbH.

 

The project is funded by the European Union.

Tips for using search operators

Use "quotation marks" to search for a series of words or a phrase in a specific order.

Boolean operators

You can find a group of words or a phrase by using the link words AND, OR and NOT:
known as Boolean operators, these words are used to combine terms in the search field.

  • AND: All the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple AND Pear will return publications containing both the word Apple and the word Pear.

     

  • OR :  At least one of the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple OR Pear will return publications containing either the word Apple or the word Pear or both.

     

  • NOT: The term preceded by NOT must not be included in the publication. Typing in Apple NOT Pear will return publications containing the word Apple but not the word Pear.
