About standards in settlements of the transmitted gas discussed in Janów Podlaski

On May 21-23, 2018, GAZ-SYSTEM hosted the Central and Eastern Europe TSO’s Metrological Forum, gathering representatives of transmission gas pipeline operators from Central and Eastern Europe as well as manufactures of measuring equipment. 

The meeting in Janów Podlaski was an occasion to compare binding regulations on meteorological supervision, calibration of gas meters, yet an opportunity to share know-how and experience in this field.
   
Representatives of GAZ-SYSTEM underlined that the Gas Meter Calibration Laboratory, opened Hołowczyce back in 2017, fulfills the needs of the gas market both in Poland and Europe. The organization addresses the new services to end users, distribution companies and all entities interested in calibration of gas meters. Once properly conducted, the process will result in an increased accuracy of settlements between transmission gas pipeline operators and their clients as well as within the entire gas 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.
