Czeszów-Kiełczów gas pipeline

Project description

The project objective was to build a gas pipeline from Czeszów to Kiełczów of a length of approximately 33 km and a diameter of 1000 mm. The design works started in the third quarter of 2013, and on October 2015 a building permit was obtained for the pipeline.
On November 2016 a contract was signed with consortium of BUDIMEX S.A. and MOSTOSTAL Kraków S.A. for the implementation of the project.

The project was completed in the third quarter of 2018.

The gas pipeline is located in the Lower Silesia Voivodeship, in Zawonia and Długołęka area.

 

Benefits

The Czeszów-Kiełczów gas pipeline is an element of the expansion of the transmission system in the Lower Silesia region and the planned investment programme related to the start-up of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, as well as the creation of a North-South Corridor. The construction of the Czeszów-Kiełczów gas pipeline is an important element in the reinforcement of Poland's energy security. Together with the other gas pipelines which will arise in the Lower Silesia region, the new segment with the highest operating parameters will allow for the transmission of larger quantities of gas in the transmission system and will constitute an element of the North-South Corridor.

 Legal basis

The project is based on the provisions of the Act of 24 April 2009 on investment projects related to the liquefied natural gas re-gasification terminal in Świnoujście (consolidated wording: Journal of Laws No 84, item 700, amended). The gas pipeline has been included in the catalogue of projects accompanying the terminal-related projects, pursuant to the Act of 30 May 2014 amending the Act on investment projects related to the liquefied natural gas re-gasification terminal in Świnoujście and amending the Act on real estate management (Journal of Laws of 2014, item 906).
