GERMANY'S WINTERSHALL TO HIKE GAS SALES
Germany's Wintershall Erdgas West GmbH is poised to step up natural gas sales. It has signed a 20 year contract to supply gas to Hamburger Gaswerke GmbH (HGW). Wintershall will provide 30-51 bcf/year to the Hamburg utility starting in 1994. The gas will come from Russia and the Dutch offshore Markham field via the Midal pipeline operated by Wintershall and Russia's Gazprom. It will be stored in a new 100 bcf unit at Rehden, Lower Saxony.
