GRTgaz Deutschland and Elengy are two key players in the European natural gas transportation market
Connecting the energies of the future
GRTgaz Deutschland operates the MEGAL pipeline, which extends GRTgaz’s German natural gas transportation network into Czechia and Austria. This high-capacity pipeline has the dual function of transporting natural gas in Southern Germany and routing it to France.
The large volumes transported contribute to securing both countries’ energy supply. Likewise, the gas infrastructure allows for large quantities of renewable energy to be transported and stored. The integration of renewable and low-carbon gas into the energy system is a rapid, efficient and economical way of reducing CO2 emissions across all consumption sectors.
GRTgaz Deutschland contributes to the energy transition and to the development of low-carbon natural gas transportation by working with other German transport network managers to build a transport infrastructure focussed on hydrogen and green gases.

"By making gas a “greener” option and promoting the development of hydrogen, we are helping to step up the pace of the energy transition, while offering innovative solutions to our customers."

Appygas: an intrapreneurial venture inspired by natural gas transportation
GRTgaz Deutschland is increasing the transparency of European natural gas transportation with its start-up, appygas, which allows key gas market data to be viewed in near-real time.
The appygas innovation project began in February 2018 with the launch of the my.appygas.com
platform, which provides users with all relevant data about natural gas transportation in Europe.
The appygas team’s processing and understanding of public data draws on its transport network management expertise.
With its emphasis on smart visualisation processes, the appygas team stays faithful to its motto of "the gas market made easy".
Elengy: a European leader for LNG terminals
Elengy is an expert in Liquified Natural Gas (LNG). It operates three regulated LNG terminals in France: Montoir-de-Bretagne on the Atlantic coast, Fos Cavaou, and Fos Tonkin in the Mediterranean.
As LNG gateways to Europe, these three sites provide the market with a range of services, including the loading and unloading of all types of LNG tankers, transshipment between LNG tankers, loading tanker lorries with LNG, or LNG regasification for injection into the transport network.
With LNG, Elengy contributes to the energy transition, for which stakeholders around the world have pledged to reduce their environmental footprint. Elengy is expanding its services to develop LNG usages and to be able to provide a carbon-neutral offering by 2050.
