The German company Gascade Gastransport has received a second permit to lay the Eugal gas pipeline in Saxony, which is an onshore extension of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
“On September 27, the Saxony government office in Chemnitz surrendered to Gascade Gastransport a decision to adopt the plan. This means that all the permits necessary for the construction of the southern section of Eugal in Saxony have been obtained,” the report said.
As the company notes, the construction of the southern section in Saxony with a length of 54 kilometers will begin next week. The works on the installation of the entire Eugal gas line in Saxony are expected to continue until the end of 2019. Earlier, Gascade received a permit to build the Eugal gas pipeline in Brandenburg and a permit to build the northern section of Eugal in Saxony.
The Eugal gas pipeline project involves the construction of a gas pipeline with a length of about 485 kilometers from the Baltic Sea through Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg to the southern part of the Czech Republic.
We should remind you that Nord Stream 2 is an under-construction 1220-kilometer gas pipeline that will run from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea.
