Description of the investment

The aim of the project was the construction of the Szczecin-Gdańsk gas pipeline which is 700 mm in diameter and 267 km in length, located in the area of zachodniopomorskie and pomorskie voivodships.

Between 2012 and 2015, four stages of the construction of the Szczecin-Gdańsk high pressure gas pipeline were finalized. A permission was granted for the exploitation of all stages: 

  • the first stage covering the Płoty-Karlino (64 km) - in November 2014
  • the second stage covering the Karlino-Koszalin (19,5 km) - in February 2015
  • the third stage covering the Koszalin-Słupsk (69 km) - in March 2015
  • the fourth stage covering the Słupsk-Wiczlino (114,5 km) along with Reszki gas hub - in July 2015
