Eugal-Pipeline fully approved: Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania also announces planning approval decision
Work to construct the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has been given the go-ahead. The Stralsund Mining Authority’s decision brings together all the individual approvals needed to build the EUGAL in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

After Brandenburg and Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is the third federal state to give all the necessary approvals for the EUGAL-pipeline. “The approval for the EUGAL is an important step toward making the German and European pipeline network more secure and flexible in the long term,” says Ludger Hümbs, EUGAL Chief Project Manager. “In order to carry out projects like the EUGAL, it is important to involve all the relevant people continuously and from an early stage. Even during the construction phase, we want to remain in contact with all local residents and continue the dialog,” as Hümbs emphasizes.

Construction work for the 102-kilometer section in the Vorpommern-Greifswald district will begin shortly. Initial work will be carried out in the area around the Peene intersection near Stolpe and around Pasewalk. Removal of the topsoil will then begin at further sites along the route. The necessary preparations for construction were already carried out in the past few weeks. This included setting up construction offices along the planned route and taking steps to protect traffic on the adjacent roads. Construction of the EUGAL section in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania will see two parallel pipeline strings built. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020. All owners and leaseholders whose plots of land are affected will be notified again before work starts.

Around 480 kilometers in length, the EUGAL gas pipeline will run from Lubmin at the Bay of Greifswald as far as the German/Czech border. In the section under approval in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the pipeline will run exclusively through the Vorpommern-Greifswald district. The EUGAL’s starting point – the natural gas receiving station “Lubmin 2” – was already approved in a separate procedure and is now under construction. From there, the EUGAL will run in a southerly direction, passing Anklam and Pasewalk, as far as the border with Brandenburg near Damerow.

In order to minimize the space required, the EUGAL will be laid largely parallel to the existing OPAL gas pipeline. The pipeline will be able to transport up to 55 billion cubic meters of gas every year. With the new pipeline, GASCADE is responding to the growing demand for gas and gas transport capacity in Europe.


EUGAL is a natural gas pipeline that will extend over a length of some 480 kilometers from the Baltic Sea through Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg via southern Saxony to the border with the Czech Republic and will largely comprise two parallel strings. EUGAL will be built with one string in Saxony, running southwards from Lampertswalde (Meißen district) to Deutschneudorf (Erzgebirgskreis district) at the German/Czech border. A natural gas export station with a gas pressure regulating and metering station is also planned in Deutschneudorf. With the construction of the EUGAL, GASCADE is responding to the growing demand for natural gas and transport capacity in Europe.
