An incident occurred on Tuesday in the Rehden natural gas storage facility in the north-west German state of Lower Saxony.

The storage system had been shut down as a precaution, the German Federal Network Agency announced in the evening. Experts from the operating company and an employee of the supervisory authority – the State Office for Mining, Energy and Geology (LBEG) – are on the spot at the plant in Rehden to determine the cause of the deflagration.

There is no evidence of external influence, said a LBEG spokesman. Such an incident does not happen often. But: “Where technology is in use, something like this can happen.”
