Gas transit service via the Jamal Gas Pipeline carried out in accordance with orders made by customers

The gas transit service via the Jamal Gas Pipeline is carried out by GAZ-SYSTEM on an ongoing basis, in accordance with orders made by customers. The capacity of this very gas pipeline is used based on EU law by means of participation in auctions.

Orders are being completed to the full extent, and while having such low levels in ordering capacity from the east, there is no need for the compressor station to operate around the clock. Therefore, the Jamal Gas Pipeline is not in operation all the time. In the case when gas orders from Germany are higher than those from the east, a physical transmission may be launched – on a periodic basis – at the Mallnow Reverse point from Germany towards Poland.

At the same time, We would like to remind that until May 31 this year, it will not have been possible to reserve the capacity on the Jamal Gas Pipeline. Ordering the capacity until the end of May shall have taken place by means of auctions in daily and within-day products, as per to customers’ demands.

It is customers who are to decide to what extent they want to use the Jamal Gas Pipeline. Currently, orders are much smaller, but the capacity is ordered every day, commencing from May 17, 2020.

From June 1, the capacity of the monthly product is reserved on the Jamal Gas Pipeline. The capacity in the quarterly product was also ordered in the period from July 1 to September 30 this year.

Meanwhile, annual auctions for the next gas year, i.e. the year starting from October 1, 2020, will be held in July.

For the purpose serving to obtain more information on the results of the capacity auction at the entry/exit points on the Polish section of the Jamal-Europe Gas Pipeline, we encourage you to use the Platformy GSA.

As of 6 July 2020, capacity auctions at Mallnow will be held on the RBP platform, while at other points of the Jamal Pipeline - on the GSA Platform, as before.

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.
