Two gas transmission pipeline operator companies, Gaz System and Europipe, have signed a contract in Warsaw for the supply of special tubing for the offshore segment of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline. The gas pipeline, which is to be put into operation in autumn 2022, will connect the Polish and Danish gas systems, which will allow the transmission of 10 billion cubic meters of gas from the Norwegian shelf to Poland.
”The project is on the finishing stages of securing licences and permits for the construction of the infrastructure. The competitive bidding process to build the underwater and ground segments of the Baltic Pipe Project is underway. The preparation stages will be finished in the first half of this year, after which we will begin the construction of the underwater part of the pipeline”- says piotr Naimski, Government Plenipotentiary for strategic energy infrastructure.
