BRUSSELS, May 30 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s gas giant Gazprom hopes to get an access to the OPAL pipeline this year, Gazprom deputy CEO and Gazprom Export Director-General Alexander Medvedev said on Thursday.
In reply to the question whether the Russian gas monopoly wants to get an access to OPAL this year, he said, “This.”
The 470 kilometer OPAL pipeline’s throughput capacity is 36 billion cubic meters a year. This is one of the gas pipelines (second one is NEL) that links the offshore section of Nord Stream with Germany’s gas pipeline network. It runs from Lubmin close to Greifswald through Brandenburg and Saxony to the border with the Czech Republic.
