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 is a strategic company for the Polish economy. It is responsible for the transmission of natural gas, manages the most important gas pipelines in Poland and owns the President Lech Kaczyński LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.

As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM is constructing over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in the western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Over a dozen new gas pipelines are under construction within the North-South Gas Corridor and the compressor station in Kędzierzyn Koźle, as well as interconnections with Lithuania and Slovakia. Onshore gas pipelines are planned to connect the planned FSRU floating terminal in the Gulf of Gdansk with the national transmission system. The LNG Terminal in Świnoujście is also being extended, as a result of which the regasification capacity of this facility will be increased by more than a half.

The company is also implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in the country - the Baltic Pipe project which consists in the construction of a two-way offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark, expansion of the local transmission network and three gas compressor stations.
