We established a presence in Germany in 1984 with the aim of providing reliable and stable supplies of natural gas from Norway. Now, we are the second largest supplier of gas to Europe, and in the years to come, our goal is to pave the way to Germany's energy revolution with natural gas from Norway.

Germany’s energy questions need answers.
What we do in Germany
When we first entered the German market in the mid-1980s, our vision was to provide reliable gas supplies to Europe.
We established a gas storage facility in the underground salt dome caverns in Etzel, near Wilhelmshaven, and a few years later the 670 long Europipe I pipeline was opened. We now supply about one third of Germany’s gas, and the Etzel facility can store over 1.2 billion standard cubic metres of gas. Etzel is one of the central locations where gas pipelines intersect.
Since 2014, we have had an office in Berlin whose main task is to ensure dialogue with German energy policymakers.
