GAZ-SYSTEM tightens cooperation with Croatia

Throughout the Three Seas Summit, GAZ-SYSTEM has entered into an agreement with Plinacro, a Croatian transmission system operator. The companies are going to collaborate in favor |of development of the natural gas market in Central Europe.

- Launching the Three Seas initiative will contribute to expansion of the cooperation with the Croatian partner, that has been continued since 2013, particularly in terms of sharing of know-how. Thanks to this agreement, we could jointly support further development of the LNG market and its  technologies as well as underground gas warehousesdeclared Tomasz Stępień, CEO of GAZ-SYSTEM.

Plinacro started to implement the first stage of construction works at the LNG terminal, based at Krk Island, and expand the transmission infrastructure towards the neighbor states. However, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to increase regasification capabilities of the President Lech Kaczyński Terminal in Świnoujście. In order to enhance gas transmission between the terminals, it is indispensable to carry out further expansion of the Polish  transmission system and provide a full integration of gas markets within the Region of the Baltic Sea and Central Europe.

Encouraging collaboration between operators from Poland and Croatia will spur the construction process of the North-South Gas Corridor, all the Members of the Three Seas Initiative, i.e.  Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, will benefit from in the future.

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
