Gas transport on NEL, OPAL to be interrupted for two hours
On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, necessary work will be carried out on the power supply at the Greifswald landing station.
Gas transport will therefore be discontinued on the Northern European gas pipeline (NEL) and Baltic Sea Pipeline Link (OPAL) for an expected two hours in the morning. The work will be carried out between 9 and 11 a.m., according to Gascade, a certified transmission system operator.
The gas supply will not be affected, it said.
UNIAN memo. GASCADE has successfully implemented two of Germany's largest pipeline construction projects to date, by connecting the NEL and OPAL pipelines to Nord Stream.
Nord Stream is an offshore natural gas pipeline from Vyborg in the Russian Federation to Greifswald in Germany that is owned and operated by Nord Stream AG. The project includes two parallel lines. The first line was laid by May 2011 and was inaugurated on November 8, 2011. The second line was laid in 2011–2012 and was inaugurated on October 8, 2012.
