Skoczów-Komorowice-Oświęcim gas pipeline

Description of the investment project
The aim of the project is the construction of the Skoczów-Komorowice-Oświęcim gas pipeline.

The Skoczów-Komorowice-Oświęcim gas pipeline is located in the territory of voivodeships:

  • Śląskie in the municipalities of Skoczów, Jasienica, Bielsko-Biała, Bestwina, Wilamowice,
  • Małopolskie in the municipalities of Kęty, Oświęcim.

The route of the new gas pipeline will mainly run along the existing high-pressure gas pipeline.

 

The investment is planned to be finished in 2021.

Legal basis

The project is performed 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 of 2016, item 1731). 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).

Benefits of the project

The effect of the investment will be increasing the safety and reliability of natural gas transmission to the region, and on the national scale increasing the transmission capacity and the degree of diversification of natural gas sources.

The property tax paid each year by GAZ-SYSTEM, equalling 2% of the value of the transmission infrastructure located within the territory of a given municipality, will be considerable benefit for the local communities in question.
