The NATO Pipeline System (NPS)

maj 23, 2008 at 10:20 pm 17 kommentarer

In my recent article about the damaged NATO pipeline in Belgium; I explained that many of the pipes in NATO’s Pipeline systems are more than 50 years old. They were put in the ground in the time of the cold war and still serve all NATO’s oil and petroleum requirements.

The NATO Pipeline System (NPS) is made up of nine separate storage and distribution system for the military. The whole system has a length of nearly 12.000 kilometres and runs through 12 NATO nations. It was a pipeline from the Central European Pipeline System that was damaged by a farmer causing the leak. This system runs through Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The damaged pipeline serves the Florennes airbase in southern Namur in Belgium.

This was the second accidental damage within 3 years, and Belgian ministers and environmentalists are now pressing NATO to take action. The Public Company Assistance Environmental Quality (SPAQue) in Belgium will even asses the extent of pollution in Mons and seek to impose the polluter pays principle on NATO.

NATO says that they have taken the requisite security and environmental measures which should be expected of them. Because the pipeline runs through Belgium, they as the host country is responsible for the maintenance of the system and that they should take necessary measures and hand NATO the bill.

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
