The TNC of Transit Gas Pipeline System new version

By decision of the President of the Energy Regulatory Office of the 27th May 2020, the Transmission Network Code of the Polish Section of the Transit Gas Pipeline System Jamal – Europe (the “TNC of TGPS”) was approved.  The document is a legal framework for the Polish TGPS section.

The proposed changes result from the need to adapt the TNC of TGPS to changing legal requirements and to the entrustment agreement concluded by GAZ-SYSTEM and EuRoPol GAZ s.a., relating to operator’s duties applied to the Yamal Gas Pipeline stemming from  the President of the Energy Regulatory Office Decision from 19 December 2019. The implemented solutions are also the result of experience gained during the application of the present TNC of TGPS, as well as suggestions provided by the transmission system users as a result of consultations on the draft Instruction, which took place in March 2020.

Pursuant to the decision of the President of the Energy Regulatory Office, the amended TNC of TGPS shall enter into force on 1st June, 2020 at 6:00 a.m.

At the same time we would like to inform you that the content of the TNC of TGPS approved by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office has been published by GAZ-SYSTEM in the Customer Zone section.

The information package included proposals of new provisions of the TNC of TGPS as well as  results of market consultations conducted in March is available here.

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.
