Advantages of the project
The high-pressure Pogórska Wola-Tworzeń gas pipeline will enable to increase the energy security of Poland by dividing the stream of gas and shortening a gas transport route.
This will be an important element of the North-South Gas Corridor.
The project will enable to:
- increase transmission system capacity,
- make new investment sites more attractive,
- improve gas transport safety in the region.
An important benefit for local communities will be a real estate tax of 2% of the value of a gas pipeline section located in a given municipality which GAS-SYSTEM S.A. will pay every year.
- estimated value of the investment: 1064 MM PLN
