Construction of Eugal gas pipeline, which will receive gas from Nord Stream 2 in Germany, will be launched at the end of the II quarter of 2018, a member of the Board of Wintershall, Thilo Wieland told Gazprom’s corporate magazine.
“At the moment, the official start of construction is scheduled for the end of the second quarter of 2018. I am sure that we will be able to obtain all necessary permits and meet the deadline,” Wieland said.
He specified that the orders for raw materials for the pipeline’s construction had already been awarded and a tender construction work was being held in full swing.
Eugal pipeline will receive gas from Nord Stream 2 and transport it further to the south. According to the company’s website, the pipeline’s length will amount to approximately 485 miles. It will run from the Baltic sea on the route from Mecklenburg to Western Pomerania and Brandenburg to the south of Saxony, and from there it will run to the Czech Republic.
