Germany has begun building a pipeline that will link the LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven and the gas storage facility in Etzel. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection of Germany.
Construction of the liquefied natural gas terminal in Wilhelmshaven continues! The gas pipeline to the gas storage facility in Etzel was also launched today. Work is going according to plan. The LNG terminal should be put into operation at the end of the year, Sputnik radio reported.
It is noted that the new gas pipeline will have to transport gas for 26 km from the berth in the port to the gas storage hub in Etzel.
The media previously wrote that the construction of such a structure on average could take up to eight years. However, the authorities plan to put it into operation as early as December this year. This was reportedly made possible by a special law that authorized the construction of pipelines before the completion of the relevant planning approval process.
