Oświęcim- Tworzeń gas pipeline

Investment description

Route of the Oświęcim - Tworzeń gas pipeline

The goal of the project is construction of the Oświęcim - Tworzeń gas pipeline with a length of about 44 km, diameter of 700 mm and pressure of 8.4 MPa in the Śląskie and Małopolskie voivodships. The gas pipeline route will run through the following municipalities: Sławków, Bukowno, Jaworzno, Chrzanów, Libiąż, Chełmek and Oświęcim.

Investment stage

The investment is at the design stage. In January 2019, GAZ-SYSTEM concluded with Antea Polska S.A. a contract for the development of project documentation along with obtaining a decision on environmental conditions, a decision on determining the location of the investment and a building permit for the Oświęcim - Tworzeń gas pipeline.
Obtaining permission for the construction of the gas pipeline is planned for the third quarter of 2021.

Legal basis

The investment is implemented based on the provisions of the Act of 24 April 2009 on investments in the field of liquefied natural gas regasification terminal in Świnoujście (consolidated text of the Journal of Laws of 2020, item 1866). The gas pipeline has been entered in the catalog of investments accompanying investments in the terminal pursuant to the Act of 30 May 2014 amending the Act on investments in the scope of the regasification terminal for liquefied natural gas in Świnoujście and the Real Estate Management Act (Journal of Laws of 2014, poz.906).

Benefits of the implemented investment

The Oświęcim - Tworzeń gas pipeline is another stage in the implementation of the planned connection Skoczów - Komorowice - Oświęcim - Tworzeń, which, together with the system gas stations in Oświęcim and Sławków, will constitute an important element of the transmission system ensuring gas transport for customers from the śląskie and małopolskie voivodeship. The implementation of the investment and its connection with the Poland - Czech Interconnector commissioned in 2011 will increase the degree of diversification of gas supply sources and integration with the European energy market.
An important benefit for the local community will be annually paid by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. property tax in the amount of 2% of the value of the section of the gas pipeline located within the given commune.
