Our investments

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. plans to build more than approx. 2000 km of new pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland in 2015-2025.

Further expansion of the national transmission network and creation of new pipelines as part of the North-South Gas Corridor as well as the construction of inter-system connections with Lithuania, Slovakia and Czech Republic will make a great contribution into the development of the European transmission system.

Between 2009 and 2015, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. implemented an investment plan covering the construction of more than 1200 km of new gas transmission pipelines. The most significant projects of this kind were completed in north-west and central Poland.

The investments carried out by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and the virtual reverse service on the Jamal gas pipeline allowed for the substantial improvement of the power security of Poland by increasing the technical capacities of import from directions other than the east up to 90% of total import (till 2011, this was 9%).

Import of natural gas 

 

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. actively participates in the development of the integrated network of gas pipelines in Central Europe and influences the shape of the European gas sector. Our transmission infrastructure expansion proposals for Poland overlap with the EU plans of the construction of new connections aiming at increasing the power security and enabling to diversify the natural gas supply from new sources.

Please, familiarise with our investments presented under the individual tabs.

 

 

GUSTORZYN GAS COMPRESSOR STATION

Description of the Investment Project

Construction of Gustorzyn gas compressor station is directly related to the implementation of the Baltic Pipe project. The project will also involve the construction of new gas pipelines and extension of the two existing gas compressor stations in Odolanów and Goleniów. For more information about the Baltic Pipe project, please visit www.baltic-pipe.pl

 
Construction of the Gustorzyn compressor station is also partially related to the project of the interconnection between the transmission systems of Poland and Lithuania.


• Target capacity of the gas compressor station: 30 MW (1st stage – 20 MW, 2nd stage – 10 MW).
• Location: Brześć Kujawski Commune, Kujawy-Pomerania Province.


  
Project time schedule


• 2020 – issue of the building permit
• 2022 – construction completion date


Engineering contractor

PGNiG GAZOPROJEKT S.A.


Advantages of the implementation of the project

The new Gustorzyn gas compressor station will increase the capacity of the transmission system by moving larger amounts of gas from the Baltic Pipe underwater gas pipeline. This will improve the energy security of Poland.
The commune where the compressor station is to be constructed will receive a significant benefit in the form of annual taxes paid by GAZ-SYSTEM, amounting up to 2 percent of the value of the project located within the commune.


Legal grounds

The project is being implemented under the Act of 24 April 2009 on investment projects related to the Świnoujście Liquefied Natural Gas Regasification Terminal (Journal of Laws of 4 June 2009 as amended) (“Special Purpose Act”, Article 38(2)(h)).

 
Project of Common Interest

In 2013, the Baltic Pipe project was included in the first list of Projects of Common Interest (PCIs) prepared by the European Commission. Then, it was included in subsequent lists (second and third list) adopted by the Commission in 2015 and 2017, which emphasised its transregional significance.
More information on the importance of the PCI status for the development of the gas transmission infrastructure can be found in this tab and in this PCI brochure.


Financial support from the EU

The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is the key EU instrument for support of economic growth, employment and competitiveness designed, in particular, to improve the energy security of Europe.


Under the CEF, the European Commission has so far awarded co-financing for the Gustorzyn gas compressor station construction project for activities such as the preparation of the feasibility study and engineering activities until the issue of the required administrative permits.


GAZ-SYSTEM implements the project while respecting the rights of all interested stakeholders. Please feel free to make comments and remarks and ask questions about the compressor station construction project, which has been granted the “Project of Common Interest” status, via this form.
