The Baltic Pipe project – we are starting public consultations for the Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline

Throughout June, in 15 communes along the route of the Goleniów-Lwówek pipeline – which is to be constructed as part of the Baltic Pipe project – meetings will be held to provide information about the project. The meetings are open to all interested parties, including owners of land where works are to be conducted.

The Baltic Pipe project involves building a gas pipeline and gas infrastructure for the transmission of gas from fields in Norway to Poland and Denmark. In Poland, the project will involve building a gas pipeline connecting the Baltic Pipe to the national transmission system and a Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline. Additionally, the gas compressor stations Goleniów and Odolanów will be extended and a new compressor station will be built in Gustorzyn.
 
The project is implemented in compliance with the applicable environmental procedures and with due regard to the rights of all interested parties. GAZ-SYSTEM representatives regularly meet with local authorities and representatives of communities in the areas where project works will be carried out. The goal of the meetings is to inform all the interested parties about the plans and intentions of the project owner at the earliest possible stage of project implementation and to collect feedback from representatives of the local communities.

The first public hearing concerning the Baltic Pipe in Poland was held in March 2018 in Szczecin. Information meetings in the communes along the route of the Goleniów-Lwówek pipeline will be held throughout June. They will be attended by representatives of GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and MGGP S.A., the designer of the pipeline.

The schedule and detailed information concerning the meetings to be held in June are available on https://www.baltic-pipe.eu/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Zaproszenie_PL_gazociąg_GL_z_logo.pdf and on the websites of offices of individual communes. We invite all the interested parties to participate in the public hearings.

The Baltic Pipe is a project implemented in close cooperation between GAZ-SYSTEM, a Polish gas transmission operator, and Energinet, a Danish transmission system operator for gas and electricity. Once implemented, the project will enhance Poland’s energy security and increase the competitiveness of the Polish gas market.

Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is a strategic company for the Polish economy, responsible for the transmission of natural gas and the management of the most important gas pipelines in Poland. GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is also the owner of Polskie LNG S.A., a company established to build the Świnoujście LNG terminal.
As part of its 2015-2025 investment scheme, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is planning to build over 2,000 km of new gas lines in western, southern and eastern Poland. Further expansion of the domestic transmission system, including construction of new gas pipelines being part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as construction of interconnections with Lithuania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, will enhance Poland’s energy security and contribute considerably to the development of the European transmission system.
In 2009-2015, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. completed an investment plan consisting in the construction of over 1,200 km of new gas transmission lines in north-western and central Poland. The projects implemented by the company and the physical and virtual reversal on the Yamal pipeline have translated into a significant increase in technical import opportunities on routes other than from the East.
