Consultations regarding the list of Projects of Common Interest

On 22 December 2014 the European Commission launched consultations concerning possible Projects of Common Interest in the field of electricity and gas transmission infrastructure.

Interested parties may, until 13 March 2015, state whether they find a given project necessary from the point of view of EU energy policy, the aim of which is to ensure security of supply, market integration, competitiveness and sustainable development.

The consultations may be found on the “Your Voice in Europe” website and constitute a significant step on the path towards the preparation of the second list of Projects of Common Interest which will be published by the European Commission in October 2015.

The consultation paper is available on the website of the European Commission.

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.
