Germany's largest pipeline operator, Open Grid Europe (OGE), managing over 12 000-km of natural gas pipelines throughout Germany, is planning even more with the construction of a 1000-km pipeline network for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) for the eventual transport of up to 18 million tons per year of the greenhouse gas from German industrial centers to North Sea ports.

Once at the ports the CO2 would be recycled or compressed subterraneously and loaded onto tankers. Storage facilities for the carbon capture and storage (CCS Technology) are presently being developed in Norway, Great Britain and the Netherlands.

OGE is cooperating in this regard with Tree Energy Solutions (TES) which is seeking to turn Wilhelmshaven into a transfer point for CO2 and hydrogen.
