Gaz-System pushes forward pipeline project to facilitate LNG terminal expansion

Polish gas transmission operator, Gaz-System, has signed contracts for the development of design documentation of the onshore transmission pipelines to be built under the Baltic Pipe project. 

A consortium of companies PGNiG Gazoprojekt S.A. and ILF Consulting Engineers Polska will develop the engineering designs for the pipeline connecting the landfall of the offshore line with the national gas transmission system and the receiving terminal, whereas the Goleniów-Lwówek pipeline will be designed by MGGP S.A.

The companies selected in the public procurement procedure are committed to obtain all the necessary arrangements, approvals, opinions, permits and decisions and submit a complete package of engineering design documents to the investor by the first quarter of 2020, Gaz-System said in a statement.

The investment projects described above are necessary for the functioning of the Polish transmission system handling increased volumes of natural gas obtained from diversified supply sources, expansion of the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście and the construction of the offshore gas pipeline between Denmark and Poland.

The offshore pipeline will reach Polish coast of the Baltic Sea in the West Pomeranian Province. Depending on the finally selected route of the offshore pipeline, the transmission system will be 230 to 300 km long. Moreover, the project provides for the construction of a new gas compressor station in Gustorzyn, and the expansion of two compressor stations in Odolanów and Goleniów.

Among some of the key benefits of these projects, Gay-System said that it would increase Poland’s energy security,
