NOWAL. From north to west.

NOWAL (North-West pipeline link) was built and commissioned in 2017. It has a diameter of DN 1000 and is 26 kilometers in length. It connects a node in the GASCADE infrastructure near Rehden with the OGE network in Drohne in Westphalia. That increases the transport capacity between the powerful entry points in North and Eastern Germany and the consumption centers in Western and Southern Germany. The relevance of this pipeline is due in particular to the L/H gas conversion in Western Germany and will increase further as a result of the market area merger.
