Benefits

- Improving the security and continuity of gas supply to distribution network operators and individual consumers connected to networks, taking into account the growing demand for gas, also for heating and domestic purposes;

- Development of local infrastructure, secure gas supplies to customers and the possibility of connecting new gas consumers to the transmission system;

- Reducing the congestion in the existing gas pipelines supplying the area of Warsaw, Łódź and Radom, which will significantly improve the operating security and create additional supply opportunities;
