"Second largest cavernous storage operator in Germany. Connections to two market areas. This is what stability looks like."

We are very young yet have half a century of experience because we have only been VNG Gasspeicher GmbH since March 1st, 2012 – but gas storage professionals since 1964.

Listen. And Be Heard.

We are active in several German and international associations which represent both our financial and political interests. Germany must import most of its natural gas. This makes gas storage facilities critical to ensuring stability in both supply and pricing. One of our main objectives is making sure that the immensely important role of natural gas storage for Germany is understood in both political and legal circles.
