Gustorzyn-Wronów gas pipeline

Gustorzyn - Wronów gas pipeline
Stage I Gustorzyn-Leśniewice


Investment description

The aim of the project is to build a high pressure gas pipeline from Gustorzyn to Leśniewice, which will enable the transmission of increased volumes of gas to Warsaw and Łódź agglomerations, Radom and its surroundings, and to the south-eastern regions of the country. The planned investment will also have an impact on the development of local infrastructure.

Basic investment parameters:

- high pressure gas pipeline  
- diameter: 1000mm  
- working pressure: 8.4 MPa  
- length: approx. 60 kilometres         
- Stage: design
- Designer: OTS-IP Sp. z o.o.
- Expected date of completion of the investment - 2023


Gustorzyn-Leśniewice gas pipeline will be located in Kujawy-Pomerania and Mazovia provinces. The planned route will run through the territory of   18 communes.






- Improving the security and continuity of gas supply to distribution network operators and individual consumers connected to networks, taking into account the growing demand for gas, also for heating and domestic purposes;

- Development of local infrastructure, secure gas supplies to customers and the possibility of connecting new gas consumers to the transmission system;

- Reducing the congestion in the existing gas pipelines supplying the area of Warsaw, Łódź and Radom, which will significantly improve the operating security and create additional supply opportunities;

- Flexible operation of the transmission system in case of gas supply disruptions, or in case of complete interruption of deliveries from the east.

An important benefit for the local community will be the property tax paid annually by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. in the amount of up to 2% of the value of the gas pipeline section located within the commune. This will be a regular stream of revenue that can be used for the needs of local communities.

The compensation payments are made according to an administrative procedure, under the supervision of the competent Voivode, at whose request an independent valuator prepares a valuation report that is the basis for determining the amount of compensation. After the completion of construction, the Voivode issues an administrative decision determining the amount of compensation.
