GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is the designer of the most important pipeline on the Polish coast

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is currently drafting the construction design and the final design for the development of the high pressure pipeline that is to run between Szczecin and Gdańsk.

The gas connection between Szczecin and Gdańsk is part of the plan to reinforce the transmission system in Northwest Poland. The investment will provide the technical capacity to transport higher natural gas volumes from the new delivery direction whereas the pipeline itself will play a crucial role in the transmission of gas from the LNG terminal that is to be based in Świnoujście. The development of the gas infrastructure in the Baltic region will also serve the Nordic states providing them with access to liquefied gas through the terminal located on the Polish coast.

The Szczecin – Gdańsk pipeline will measure approximately 265 km in length and is designed to have a diameter of 700 mm. The pipeline will be developed in the West Pomerania and the Pomerania regions and will become the longest pipeline among those foreseen in the GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. investment plan to 2014.

It is expected that the project documentation will be completed (construction design and final design, inclusive of the investment location decision and the building permit) in the second half of 2011 following which it will be possible to announce a tender for the pipeline construction. According to the investment time schedule, the completion of the pipeline is planned for 2013.

The construction project of the Szczecin - Gdańsk pipeline is listed for funding from the Operating Program Infrastructure and Environment 2007-2013 approved by the European Commission on 7 December 2007. The forecasted subsidy amount is 302.11 M PLN.

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is also preparing construction designs and final designs for its other strategic pipelines, such as the pipelines of Świnoujście-Szczecin, Szczecin-Lwówek, Gustorzyn-Odolanów, Rembelszczyzna-Gustorzyn, Jeleniów–Dziwiszów, Taczalin–Radakowice-Gałów, Polkowice-Żary. The construction of the final sections of the Włocławek-Gdynia pipeline is also underway.
