European Natural Gas Storage Professionals with Roots in Central Germany

When you have half a century of experience developing and operating underground natural gas storage facilities, you've learned a thing or two about the business. With this knowledge we have worked hard to make all of the technical processes involved in our gas storage operations safe, reliable and efficient. We employ highly qualified teams at each of our facilities, using the most modern of telecontrol systems as well as integrated quality and safety management.

But we never stop developing and improving upon ourselves. Together with market partners and the scientific community, we are always working on the facilities and technology of tomorrow. And we offer stability: as a wholly owned subsidiary of VNG – Verbundnetz Gas AG (VNG AG) with headquarters in Leipzig.

 

The Future is Our Daily Business.

Despite the rapid changes taking place in today's energy markets natural gas will continue to play a key part in this important field. At the same time, reliable storage solutions for renewable energy are being sought after across Europe. VNG Gasspeicher is up the challenge. Using intelligent, customer-oriented storage products and innovative ideas, we are already placing our clients at the forefront of marketplace flexibility. We pick up on decisive impulses – and offer you the greatest degree of flexibility possible so you can take advantage of opportunities more quickly and effectively.
