BBL Company was established on 9 July 2004 in order to design, construct, operate and exploit the BBL pipeline for the transmission of natural gas from Balgzand in the Netherlands to Bacton in the United Kingdom. The approval of the project by partners was based on three long term transmission agreements with GasTerra (the Netherlands), E.ON Ruhrgas (Germany) and Wingas (Germany) for transport of gas from Balgzand to Bacton. After a construction period of just two years transport of gas to the UK started on 1 December 2006.
