Gas Storage facility
Bergermeer, the Netherlands

The Bergermeer Gas Storage is Europe’s largest gas storage facility with an initial working volume of 4.1 billion cubic meters. The storage significantly enhances the security of energy supply to Dutch and European consumers and contribute to the liquidity of the North West European gas markets.

The gas is transported from the well site through two 30” high pressure (160 barg) pipelines to the gas treatment plant in Alkmaar. Here the production flow is treated to meet the product sales specification. The gas is delivered to the Gasunie grid by a 36” and a 24” two connection. The total length of the pipelines is approximately 35 km.

Bilfinger Tebodin was responsible for the complete engineering services for the underground pipelines. It comprises detailed engineering and design, permitting documents, procurement assistance and all other activities necessary to facilitate the successful completion of the pipelines
