There are two types of natural gas: L-gas, which is produced in Germany and the Netherlands, and H-gas, which is produced in the rest of the world. As L-gas production is continuously declining, all connections supplied with L-gas will be switched to H-gas by 2030.
The distribution system operators affected by the conversion and the directly connected consumers will be contacted by us in order to jointly plan the conversion process at an early stage.
