Natural gas provides 45% of the Dutch energy mix. Each year approximately 120 billion m3 of natural gas is transported through the Dutch transport systems. Some 45 billion m3 of natural gas is distributed through the distribution systems of, amongst others Alliander, to households, businesses and industry. Efficiently, safely and reliably. With an impressive 12.000 km of high-pressure pipelines in heavily populated areas, connecting gas wells scattered around the Netherlands to the market (plaatje van het Nederlandse gas). The Netherlands are also the starting point of the Western European gas market. You can see that the Netherlands has the ambition to maintain its role as the European natural gas roundabout. In the Netherlands you will find:
- a connection with the Russian gas fields via the North Stream Route, connecting them to the British market through the BBL pipeline
- modern underground gas storages to cope with the daily and seasonal swing and with peak demand
- a completely upgraded Groningen gas field (3 Tcm) with enhanced recovery and a vast amount of smaller gas fields
- LNG terminals
- impressive gas compressor stations
- 98% of the households using natural gas for heating and cooking
- natural gas trading hub
The Dutch natural gas infrastructure is amongst the cleanest and most efficient in the world. Also, by using natural gas, the Netherlands can meet its promises to challenges such as pushing back CO2-emissions, providing sufficient future energy supplies and securing a transition to sustainable energy.
Sharing energy expertise
The natural gas knowledge and experience of the Dutch energy companies have been combined in a unique Dutch organisation, Global Gas Networks Initiative. Dutch Senior gas Experts share their knowledge with governments, , authorities, industry, investors and project developers around the world.
