BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 30. Gas flows by Fluxys Belgium to Germany soared to 256 TWh in 2022 (from 20 TWh in 2021) and those to the Netherlands increased to 145 TWh (from 68 TWh in 2021), Trend reports via the company.

As such, the supplies to Germany and Netherlands rose by 12.8 times and 2.1 times, respectively year-on-year.

At the same time, the Loenhout storage facility was filled to record levels before the winter period started.

“The Belgian network has thus once again confirmed its role as an energy hub for Europe, with the Zeebrugge area as an important gateway for both natural gas via pipelines and LNG via ship. The geopolitical situation has profoundly changed the dynamics of gas markets and the direction of flows in Europe. Throughout the year, our teams across the country left no stone unturned to ensure security of supply in North-West Europe – with impressive results,” reads the latest report released by Fluxys Belgium.

Fluxys Belgium is an independent operator of the high-pressure natural gas transmission network, the natural gas storage infrastructure and the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Zeebrugge. It operates 12,000 km of pipeline for gas transmission across Europe and in Brazil. Fluxys Belgium manages liquefied natural gas terminals in Belgium, France, Greece and Chile, with a total yearly regasification capacity of 380 TWh. It stores natural gas at the underground gas storage facility in Loenhout, Belgium.
