Belgium and France

Receiving terminals in Belgium and France.

Zeepipe terminal JV

The Zeepipe receiving terminal stands in the port area of Zeebrugge in Belgium, about five kilometres from the landfall.

This facility removes possible residual liquids and solids, and regulates gas pressure and temperature. In addition, it meters volume and checks quality before the gas continues to the transport operator downstream of the terminal.

The Zeepipe terminal also remotely operates the Franpipe receiving terminal at Dunkerque in France.

Zeepipe Terminal JV (joint venture) was established on 7 September 1988 and owns the receiving facility for the Zeepipe system. The joint venture has no employees and work is organised through the management committee. Gassco serves as operator for the joint venture, and chairs the management committee.
