Storage Zone L-Gas

The Storage Zone L-Gas consists of up to 21 caverns (Nüttermoor/Huntorf) with a grid connection to the TSO Gastransport Nord (market area "THE") Alternatively, some caverns in Nüttermoor can also be operated on Gasunie Deutschland's pipeline network (Storage facility Nüttermoor L-Gas (GUD)) (market area "THE").

 As of 1.4.2022, the capacities of the “Storage Zone L-gas (GTG)” with connection to the transmission system of GTG Nord and the capacities of “Nüttermoor L-gas (GUD)” with connection to the transmission system of Gasunie Deutschland will be aggregated under the "Storage Zone L-gas".

In the course of the L-H-gas market area/storage conversion, the L-gas caverns will be successively converted to H-gas in the coming years (EWE H-Gas Zone). However, they remain connected to the transmission system of Gastransport Nord (market area "THE").

Not only due to technical reasons, the technically available storage capacities may change from time to time. In particular, due to the market area conversion starting in summer 2021 and the corresponding successive storage conversion from L- to H-gas, certain data inconsistencies may occur for technical/operational reasons.
