Jamal-Gas-Anbindungsleitung (JAGAL) Gas Pipeline is an operating natural gas pipeline.
The pipeline runs from Mallnow, Brandenburg, to Rückersdorf, Thüringen, Germany. It connects with the OPAL Gas Pipeline and the new European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL) at Kienbaum; a spur pipeline from Kienbaum connects to the Steinitz-Bernau Gas Pipeline at Bernau bei Berlin. The JAGAL pipeline ends at an interconnection with the STEGAL Gas Pipeline at Rückersdorf.

JAGAL (Jamal-Gas-Anbindungsleitung, or "Yamal Gas Connection Pipeline") is a German section of the Yamal-Europe pipeline. The pipeline is used for the Russian natural gas import and it is owned and operated by Gascade Gastransport GmbH, a joint venture between Germany's BASF and Russia's Gazprom. It runs from the Polish–German border at Lebus near Frankfurt (Oder) to Rückersdorf, Thuringia. In Rückersdorf JAGAL is connected with STEGAL pipeline carrying gas further west. In Bernau bei Berlin JAGAL is connected with the Verbundnetz Gas AG-operated long-distance gas pipeline No. 302.
Construction of the JAGAL pipeline started in 1995, when a double duct between Lebus and Górzyca in Poland was laid under Oder and 11-km (6.8-mi) long connection from Lebus to Mallnow compressor station was built. This section was completed in 1996. The 97-km (60-mi) second section of JAGAL from Mallnow to Baruth/Mark was completed in 1997. 230-km (140-mi) JAGAL II from Baruth to Rückersdorf was constructed in 1999.
