Sep 29, 1999 02:00 AM

The construction of a new leg of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline ended in Germany. Residents of Germany and other West European countries are expected to receive up to 28 bn cm of Russian gas through that pipe every year.
The 336 km-long pipeline leg connected to the Yamal- Europe system came from Frankfurt-on-Oder to Rueckersdorf, Thueringen, via the lands of Brandenburg, Sachsen-Anhalt and Saxony, a representative of the Wingas GmbH joint venture that fulfilled the project told.
In his words, the gas delivery will start soon.

Wingas GmbH, formed in 1993 by the BASF German chemical concern and Russian Gazprom, invested 1.1 bn German marks in the project. All in all, the two companies have invested over 5 bn German marks in the creation of the German gas system.
