Background

The Castelnou-Tivissa gas pipeline is owned and operated by Enagás, Spain's main natural gas carrier.[3]

Expansion

Castelnou-Tivissa underwent "duplication" or expansion in 2010. The new pipeline's route runs parallel to the existing one. It also passes nearby to Natura 2000 lands—a network of nature protection areas in the territory of the European Union. To limit the impact to areas of community interest, the track width was reduced to 14 meters.[2]
