The Rawa Mazowiecka – Wronów pipeline enters the design phase

GAZ-SYSTEM has concluded an agreement on developing design documentation for the construction of the Rawa Mazowiecka – Wronów section of the Gustorzyn – Wronów gas pipeline. The design will be prepared by the consortium of ILF Consulting Engineers Polska Sp. z o.o. and PGNiG GAZOPROJEKT S.A., selected in a public tendering procedure.

The responsibilities of the consortium will include obtaining environmental decisions, decisions determining investment location and the building permit. Completion of the design documentation and obtaining the project implementation permit is planned for the end of 2020.

GAZ-SYSTEM continues to expand the transmission network in Poland. The company’s Investment Plan for 2018–2020 covers over 160 tasks with the total value of PLN 7.7 billion. The key projects include a gas pipeline connecting the gas transmission node in Gustorzyn (Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship) with the Compressor Station in Wronów (Lubelskie Voivodeship).

The longest section of the pipeline, with the length of ca. 156 km, runs from Rawa Mazowiecka to Wronów. For the two other sections, i.e. Gustorzyn – Leśniewice (ca. 60 km) and Leśniewice – Rawa Mazowiecka (ca. 100 km), the company plans to initiate a tendering procedure at the end of Q2 / beginning of Q3 of this year.

The investment project is consistent with the company’s development strategy, whose aim is to ensure the flexibility of operations of the entire transmission system and to connect new individual and industrial customers. The completion of the project will increase the security of gas supply, in particular to the Warsaw, Łódź and Radom metropolitan areas and to the south-eastern regions of Poland.

The project will be implemented under the Act on investment projects related to the Świnoujście LNG regasification terminal (Journal of Laws No. 84, item 700, as amended), known as the “special purpose gas act”.

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 controls Polskie LNG, the operator of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście.
