Dunkirk-Zeebrugge Gas Pipeline is a natural gas pipeline that runs from France to Belgium.
The pipeline runs from the Dunkirk LNG Terminal in Loon-Plage, France to the Fluxys Zeebrugge LNG Terminal in Zeebrugge harbor, Belgium, passing through the Pitgam compression station in France, crossing the French-Belgian border near Honschoote, and continuing through Alveringem and Maldegem, Belgium to join Fluxys's RTR pipeline network.
