DUSSELDORF, October 13. /TASS/. The supreme land court (OLG) of Dusseldorf ruled to lift all restrictions on auctions for utilization of OPAL gas pipeline capacities, press secretary of the German gas pipeline operator Tatjana Bernert told TASS on Friday.
"We can confirm that the OLG D·sseldorf dispensed finally all injunctions to halt OPAL auctions. Therefore, OPAL Gastransport GmbH & Co KG. is going to auction all available capacities in monthly and yearly auctions," the press secretary said.
