Tworóg – Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline with the building permit

GAZ-SYSTEM has been granted relevant building permits for the Tworóg – Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline. The construction works on the gas main, with the length of 43.4 km and the diameter of 1000 mm, are going to launched later this year.

The 35.8 section of this pipeline is going to run through Śląskie Province, within the communes of Tworóg, Wielowieś, Toszek and Rudziniec, whilst the section of 7.6 km will be placed in Kędzierzyn-Koźle,  Opolskie Province. 

In addition, the investment is going to cover construction of the gas distribution center based in Tworóg. The structure will include pig launchers and pig receivers, that allow for cleaning and maintenance of the gas pipelines. The new gas pipeline is going to be connected with the designed gas pipelines: Tworóg – Tworzeń and Zdzieszowice – Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

The Tworóg – Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline is considered a component of the western line of the North-South gas corridor. The European Commission provided this investment with the PCI status. Implementation of this project will contribute to enhancement of transmission capacities within the region and improvement of security and diversification of natural gas deliveries across the country.

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.
