The list of projects of common interest (PCI) published by the European Commission contains six of GAZ-SYSTEM S.A.’s infrastructure investment projects, which are of particular importance to the improvement in security and the level of diversification of natural gas supplies in Europe, as well as the development of an integrated and competitive market: 

  • Western line of the North-South corridor in Poland, together with the Poland – Czech Republic interconnection;
  • Eastern line of the North-South corridor in Poland, together with the between the Poland – Slovakia interconnection;
  • Poland – Lithuania interconnection;
  • Baltic Pipe gas pipeline;
  • Capacity extension of the Świnoujście LNG Terminal;
  • Upgrade of the entry points of the Yamal pipeline in Lwówek and Włocławek.

Qualification by the European Commission onto the list of projects of common interest – awarding the status of PCI (Project of Common Interest) means enabling these investment projects to be encompassed by best practices in the process of issuing permits, to the extent specified in Regulation (EU) 347/2013. If additional requirements are satisfied, it will also be possible to award EU funding within the framework of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) instrument, which will apply to the European Union budget perspective for the years 2014-2020.

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
