GAZ-SYSTEM has published, jointly with the neighbouring system operators within the European Union, demand assessment reports for incremental capacity

Pursuant to Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/459 of 16 March 2017 establishing a network code on capacity allocation mechanisms in gas transmission systems and repealing Regulation (EU) No 984/2013 (CAM NC), GAZ-SYSTEM, jointly with operators of adjacent transmission systems within the European Union, assessed market demand for incremental capacity for the third time.


Based on the non-binding demand indications received, the operators prepared joint demand assessment reports. The reports estimated potential demand for incremental capacity in the respective entry-exit systems and specified whether an incremental capacity project should be initiated.


The conclusions from the incremental capacity demand assessment are as follows:

The demand assessment reports for incremental capacity are also available on the ENTSOG website.

GAZ-SYSTEM is a strategic company for the Polish economy. It is responsible for the transmission of natural gas, manages the most important gas pipelines in Poland and owns the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.

As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM is constructing over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in the western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Over a dozen new gas pipelines are under construction within the North-South Gas Corridor and the compressor station in Kędzierzyn Koźle, as well as interconnections with Lithuania and Slovakia. Onshore gas pipelines are planned to connect the planned FSRU floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk with the national transmission system. The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is also being extended, as a result of which the regasification capacity of this facility will be increased by more than a half.

The company is also implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in the country - the Baltic Pipe project which consists in the construction of a two-way offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark, expansion of the local transmission network and three gas compressor stations.
