LNG pipeline in Wilhelmshaven is ready

The LNG terminal in Wilhelmshaven has a land connection. The energy supplier EWE has commissioned a pipeline in north-western Lower Saxony.

The Oldenburg-based energy supplier EWE has commissioned a new pipeline for the onward transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the north-west of Lower Saxony. EWE intends to use the approximately 70 km long pipeline to transport the LNG that arrives in Wilhelmshaven to its existing natural gas storage facilities near Jemgum in the district of Leer after it has been converted into a gaseous state.

Pipeline has a capacity of 6 billion m³

The pipeline has a capacity of up to 6 billion m³ of natural gas per year, according to a press release. According to the information provided, this is enough to supply up to 4 million households. From 2028, the pipeline, which runs through the districts of Friesland, Ammerland and Leer, will also be used to transport green hydrogen.

EWE CEO Stefan Dohler speaks of a “tour de force in an enormously short time”. The pipeline was planned and built in around 22 months. The German government’s LNG Acceleration Act came into play here, enabling faster construction.
