New natural gas infrastructure guarantees security of supply. That is what GOAL, a company of Gasunie, stands for. Natural gas from Russia is fed in at Lubmin near Greifswald and transported westward via the about 440 km long Nordeuropäische Erdgas Leitung (NEL). Southwest of Hamburg NEL and the cross border Gasunie pipeline network are connected. From here natural gas can be transported to gas customers in Germany, Denmark as well as in direction to UK, France, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Thus, GOAL contributes actively to security of supply as well as more liquidity in the market.
