Project milestone: Gascade names EUGAL pipeline construction contractors

Gascade has awarded construction of six lots – totalling 292 km – of the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) to a Bonatti–Max Streicher Germany Joint Venture (JV).

The EUGAL pipeline, comprising 14 lots that total 480 km, runs from the Baltic Sea on Germany’s northern coast to the border of the Czech republic and will be powered by the Nord Stream 2.

The JV will deliver the construction of lots 9–14 of the 56 inch (1,420 mm) pipeline in the southern part of the EUGAL route, with lots 9 and ten built as a double line.

The EUGAL runs parallel to the OPAL gas pipeline and, on completion, will enhance the distribution of gas to the heart of the European continent, with the capacity to deliver 55 billion m3/a of gas.

The first pipes were delivered for the project in 2017, with the BonattiMax Streicher JV planned to start operations in 2018 after the necessary approvals have arrived.

It is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2020, when the double line sections are delivered.
