Czeszów-Kiełczów gas pipeline

Project description

The project objective is to build a gas pipeline from Czeszów to Kiełczów of a length of approximately 33 km and a diameter of 1000 mm. The gas pipeline will be located in the Lower Silesia Voivodeship. The design works started in the third quarter of 2013, and on October 2015 a building permit was obtained for the pipeline.
The project completion is planned for the second quarter of 2018.


The Czeszów-Kiełczów gas pipeline is an element of the expansion of the transmission system in the Dolny Śląsk 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 Gas 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 Dolny Śląsk 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.

Investment costs

  • estimated investment value: 1.32 MM PLN
  • co-financing from OPI&E: 0.83 MM PLN
