Poland-Lithuania gas pipeline

Description of the investment

The aim of the project is the construction of a new cross-border gas pipeline, which will connect the natural gas transmission systems of Poland and Lithuania. The Parties to the project are GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and  Amber Grid AB– the Lithuanian transmission system operator. The project is presently on the pre-investment stage.

Benefits

The Poland – Lithuania Interconnector is perceived by the European Commission as infrastructure contributing to the integration of the European gas system and the shaping of a liberalised gas market in the northeastern part of Europe. It is considered to be a significant element that can eliminate the barriers in the formation of a gas market in this part of Europe by getting rid of the so-called "energy islands” – regions that are dependent from gas supplies from one direction, that is, from the Baltic States.

 

Investment costs

  • estimated value of the investment (stdium): 0.85 MM EUR
  • co-financing from TEN-E (for both Parties): 0.42 MM EUR
