Yet another step towards implementation of the Baltic Pipe Project

On 6th December the Voivode of West Pomerania formally announced initiation of administrative proceedings regarding the issuance of the decision determining the location for the public investment known as “Baltic Pipe offshore gas pipeline – Poland”. The decision will be issued after proceedings carried out pursuant to the act on investments related to the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście (the so called “Special Purpose Act”).

The application filed by GAZ-SYSTEM covers the offshore gas pipeline in the Polish marine areas and real estate located in Pogorzelica where the transmission infrastructure for the Baltic Pipe landfall is to be built.

The offshore gas pipeline construction is one of the five component projects under implementation within the Baltic Pipe Project in Poland. The Location Decision to be issued by the Voivode of West Pomerania in the first quarter of 2020 will allow GAZ-SYSTEM to submit the application for the Construction Permit for this part of the Baltic Pipe Project.

Baltic Pipe offshore gas pipeline – Poland

 

 

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.
