Laying of a pipeline

Focus on the environment during the preliminary study

Maintaining ecosystems

As part of the preliminary study, Fluxys examines various possible routes to bring the natural gas from point A to point B. When choosing the route, all industrial and residential areas, whether existing or planned, are taken into account. Fluxys also evaluates the risks in the areas affected by the future pipeline in order to take any specific technical measures that may be necessary. Special attention is given to farming areas, archaeological sites and the conservation of animal and plant life.

For example, Fluxys takes measures to protect the various ecosystems in the affected areas. The chosen route avoids traversing areas of ecological interest, such as nature reserves, as much as possible.

Environmental impact reports

If, for one reason or another, it is impossible to bypass ecologically valuable areas, we request certified experts to carry out all mandatory environmental impact assessments (EIAs). The experts will then draw up a list of all the measures that Fluxys must take during the execution of the project in order to minimise the environmental impact.

Tips for using search operators

Use "quotation marks" to search for a series of words or a phrase in a specific order.

Boolean operators

You can find a group of words or a phrase by using the link words AND, OR and NOT:
known as Boolean operators, these words are used to combine terms in the search field.

  • AND: All the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple AND Pear will return publications containing both the word Apple and the word Pear.

     

  • OR :  At least one of the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple OR Pear will return publications containing either the word Apple or the word Pear or both.

     

  • NOT: The term preceded by NOT must not be included in the publication. Typing in Apple NOT Pear will return publications containing the word Apple but not the word Pear.
