Tworóg-Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline

Description of the Investment Project

The purpose of the project is to construct a high-pressure gas pipeline at the section from Tworóg to Kędzierzyn-Koźle, 43,4 km long, with a diameter of 1000 mm and a pressure of 8,4 MPa. 

Location of the project
The gas pipeline will be located in:
• the Śląskie Voivodeship, in the municipalities of Tworóg, Wielowieś, Toszek, Rudziniec,
• the Opolskie Voivodeship, in the municipality of Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

The gas pipeline will mostly run along the existing high-pressure gas pipeline.

 

 

Stage of the investment

The stage of developing project documentation has been completed.

GAZ-SYSTEM has begun the construction of the Tworóg - Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline.

The contractor of construction works is IDS-BUD S.A.

The investor's supervision over the construction of the gas pipeline is SGS Polska Sp. z o.o.

The contractor of design documentation and author's supervision over the construction of the Tworóg - Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline is a consortium of companies composed of: MGGP S.A. and INIKO Sp. z o.o.

Construction of the gas pipeline is planned to be completed in 2020.

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 2017, item 2302, as 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).

Benefits resulting from 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. It will also constitute a crucial component of the North-South Gas Corridor.

The property tax paid each year by GAZ-SYSTEM, equaling 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. The taxes will benefit the local budgets on a regular basis, and can be earmarked to address the needs of local communities.

 European Union subsidies

The construction of the gas pipeline is co-funded by the European Union under the 2014-2020 Infrastructure and Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment of the European Regional Development Fund.

Project of Common Interest

In October 2013, the European Commission granted the status of the Project of Common Interest to the project. More information about the meaning of PCI status for the development of the gas transmission infrastructure is presented here and in the brochure on PCI projects.
