I have found the +towgs84 parameters on
I have modified the lambert 72 definition to : "+proj=lcc +lat_1=
51.16666723333333 +lat_2=49.8333339 +lat_0=90 +lon_0=4.367486666666666 +x_0=
150000.013 +y_0=5400088.438 +ellps=intl +towgs84=-99.059,53.322,-112.485,-
0.419,0.830,-1.885,-1.0 +units=m +no_defs no_defs <>"
The result are better but not good : I always have a difference of 80 meters
