Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is a strategic company wholly owned by the Treasury, responsible for natural gas transmissions throughout Poland. The Company controls assets worth more than 5 billion zlotys. These assets include primarily the components of the transmission system, including more than 9,800 km of high-pressure pipelines, 14 compressor stations, 56 network connection points and 970 exit points. The company employs more than 2000 persons.

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. will build more than 1,000 km of new gas pipelines by 2014. The most important of them will be situated in north-western and central Poland (Szczecin-Lwówek, Świnoujście-Szczecin, Szczecin-Gdańsk, Rembelszczyzna-Gustorzyn and Gustorzyn-Odolanów). The development of the gas transmission network in Poland may constitute an important element of the North – South Gas Corridor connecting the LNG terminal in Świnoujście to the planned Adria LNG terminal through the transmission infrastructure of Central European countries.

In 2011, GAZ–SYSTEM S.A. has completed the construction of the Włocławek–Gdynia gas pipeline and gas compressor stations in Goleniów and Jarosław. The Company has also opened a new Polish–Czech Interconnector that enables the transmission of approx. 0.5 bcm of gas annually. GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. has also developed gas pipelines in Lower Silesia that enable the off-take of greater amounts of gas from the western direction. The capacity at the Lasów point on the Polish-German border is currently 1.5 bcm annually (the previous capacity was 0.9 bcm a year).

The investment projects completed by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. in 2011 have offered a possibility of using virtual reverse flow services on the Yamal pipeline and created technical capacities to import more than 3.3 bcm of gas annually to Poland from new sources (approx. 30% of the currently imported volume).
