P&GJ Staff Report

(P&GJ) — Following is a listing of some of the longest transportation routes on the continent of Europe as of July 2023. To download the pdf, click here.

This third such report will be broken down into two sections, gas and liquids (oil and products), which will be updated in each of our September issues going forward.  

“We’ve significantly increased the amount of data we have included, adding more extensive gas pipeline capacity numbers this year,” said P&GJ Editor-in-Chief Mike Reed. “We’ll be looking for ways of adding to these lists in the coming years.” 

Listings are compiled using Gulf Energy Information’s Global Energy Information (GEI) data, which delivers real-time market data, analysis and coverage of midstream infrastructure and downstream projects.  

This remains a relatively new endeavor for P&GJ (unlike what will be our 43rd North America 500 Report (to be published in November), some large-scale, year-over-year comparisons are not practical yet. 

The top five gas pipelines, in length, are the 2,800-mile (4,506-km) Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhhorod, the 1,665-mile (2,679-km) SOYUZ, the 1,462-mile (2,352-km) Power of Siberia, the 1,150-mile (1,815-km) TANAP and the 800-mile (1,287-km) Yamal-Europe. 

The longest gas pipeline originating in Europe are all operated by Gassco: the 725-mile (1,167-km) Langeled, from Norway to the United Kingdom; the 520-mile (837-km) Franpipe, from Norway to France; and the 506-mile (814-km) Zeepipe I, from Norway to Belgium. 

The top five longest liquids pipelines are the 3,013-mile (4,849-km) ESPO, the 1,332-mile (2,144-km) NKK, the 1,200-mile (1,931-km) Tyumazy-Omsk-Novosibirsk, the 1,148-mile (1,848-km) South European Pipeline (SPSE) and the 1,100-mile (1,770-km) Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC).
