Germany’s natural gas network plan includes national LNG terminal for first time

Federal Grid Agency

The natural gas network plan for 2018 to 2028 will include plans for Germany’s first national liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) said in a press release. BNetzA said supply security was a “priority” in the agency’s network development plan for the next 10 years and long-distance pipeline operators should assess how the shut-down of important transmission lines would affect supply security for industrial centres in southern Germany. The LNG terminal could be built in Brunsbüttel near the German port city of Hamburg, the BNetzA adds.
