Tomasz Stępień, President of the Management Board, GAZ-SYSTEM, emphasized that the strategic assumption for organization’s infrastructural development until 2022 is the diversification of sources of foreign supplies. 

An implementation of the National  Development Plan for 2018 – 2027 will not only result in the increase in the supply diversification range, yet it also double the total of import capacity to the national transmission system -  he added.

According to him, the Polish transmission system will be able to play the crucial role in the integration and liberalization of natural gas markets in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. He also added that thanks to new infrastructural connections, the Polish market will become an important transmission state, open to gas suppliers, not only from EU, but from the entire world.

This year, 200 representatives from over 100 organizations participating in the company’s investment process, attended the Supplier Day organized by GAZ-SYSTEM.

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
