South German natural gas pipeline was a natural gas pipeline project in Germany. It was planned to run from Burghausen, Altötting on the German-Austrian border to Lampertheim, state of Hesse. The length of the pipeline was to be about 500 km (310 mi) and the diameter was to be 1200 mm (47 in). The pipeline was to be constructed jointly by E.ON Ruhrgas and Wingas, a joint venture of Wintershall and Russian Gazprom. The project was expected to cost €600 million ($759.2 million). The project was stopped in November 2008, mainly due to difficulties in financing. According to Wingas, the pipeline project was not economically sustainable; hence the halt of operations.[2]
