Optimisation of gas infrastructure
We have a number of pipelines in the North Sea and have leased capacity across large parts of the European pipeline system, securing access to most gas markets in Northern Europe. With this pipeline, we can transport the gas to where demand is highest at any given time.
High security of supply
We have access to gas storage facilities in Denmark and Germany, where we have capacity on long-term or short-term lease. Besides higher security of supply, these storage facilities provide flexibility, by enabling us to use gas from storage facilities rather than buying it in the market during periods when the price is high.
German and Dutch facilities
In Germany, we rent, lease and own interests in various gas storage facilities. We have entered into contracts totaling 7.2 TWh. In addition, we have import capacity in the Dutch Gate LNG terminal in Rotterdam.
