High-pressure gas pipeline; notification of construction

Anyone intending to construct a high-pressure gas pipeline must notify the competent authority of the project in writing.



The project must be notified to the competent authority at least eight weeks before the planned start of construction (Section 5 (1) GasHDrLtgV).

The competent authority may object to the project within a period of eight weeks if the specified quality of the high-pressure gas pipeline does not meet the requirements of Sections 2 and 3 GasHDrLtgV (Section 5 (2) GasHDrLtgV). This period begins as soon as the complete documents and the expert opinion of the competent authority are available and can be extended once by four weeks if this is absolutely necessary for the examination of the project.

The deadlines that apply to a planning approval or planning authorization procedure pursuant to Section 43 sentence 1 number 2 or Section 43b sentence 1 number 2 of the Energy Industry Act remain unaffected by this.

Construction of the high-pressure gas pipeline may only commence after expiry of the deadline pursuant to Section 5 (2) GasHDrLtgV or after receipt of notification that no objection has been raised. In the event of a timely complaint, work may not commence until the defect has been rectified. This does not apply to parts of the high-pressure gas pipeline that have not been objected to.
