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 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.
