German regulator removes LNG connection line from grid expansion plan

FRANKFURT, Dec 20 (Reuters) - A line to connect a planned German terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Brunsbuettel to the bigger gas grid needs to be build by the project company, not the gas grid operator, Germany’s network regulator said on Thursday.

The Bundesnetzagentur (BnetzA), following the completion of its 6.9 billion euro ($7.9 billion) gas network expansion plan for 2018-2028, said the move did not preempt a decision on whether the planned terminal was needed or could be realised.

German LNG Terminal, a joint venture of gas network operator Gasunie, tank storage provider Oiltanking, and storage tank company Vopak, plans to make an investment decision on the Brunsbuettel terminal next year. ($1 = 0.8715 euros) (Reporting by Christoph Steitz, Editing by Tassilo Hummel)
