The decision on the building permit for the gas pipeline on the Szczecin-Gdańsk route, the Koszalin-Słupsk section and the system of in/out gas locks in Reblino (approx. 69 km long) including on the Płoty-Karlino section (approx. 61,95 km long).

In February 2012, the building permit decisions were granted for Stage 1 and Stage 3 of the Szczecin-Gdańsk gas pipeline on the Płoty-Karlino section approx. 61.95 km in length (Stage 1) and on the Koszalin-Słupsk section with the Reblino system of in/out gas locks approx. 69 km in length (Stage 3). Thus, the gas pipeline comprising of 4 stages possesses the full set of building permit decisions for Stages 2, 3 and 4. For Stage 1, the building permit for the gas pipeline section approx. 2 km in length remains to be obtained in the territory of the wind power plant in Karścino.

The Szczecin-Gdańsk gas pipeline approx. 265 km in length is located in the territory of the Western Pomeranian and Pomeranian Voivodships. Construction of the investment shall be conducted in four stages: Płoty-Karlino, Karlino-Koszalin, Koszalin-Słupsk and Słupsk-Wiczlino. GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. has also obtained the environmental approval for this gas pipeline.

The estimated value of the investment is 929.20 mln PLN, whereas the co-financing amount from the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment is 226.88 mln PLN. Co-financing has also been obtained from this Programme for the Gustorzyn-Odolanów gas pipeline (175.45 mln PLN), the Szczecin-Lwówek gas pipeline (159.26 mln PLN), the Włocławek-Gdynia gas pipeline (21.47 mln PLN), the Jeleniów-Dziwiszów gas pipeline (43.90 mln PLN), the Polkowice-Żary gas pipeline (25.59 mln PLN) and the Rembelszczyzna-Gustorzyn gas pipeline (121.55 mln PLN).
The planned date of completion of the investment is October 2013.


The Gas Transmission Operator GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is a strategic Polish Company responsible for natural gas transmissions throughout Poland. The Company manages assets worth approx. 5 bn PLN, comprised mainly of elements of the transmission system, e.g. more than 9.7 thousand km of high pressure pipelines, 15 compressor stations, 56 hubs and 970 exit points. The Company employs over 2000 persons. GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is also the owner of the Polskie LNG S.A. Company, which was established to construct the liquefied natural gas terminal (LNG) terminal in Świnoujście.

GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is planning to construct approx. 1,000 km of new gas pipelines by 2014. The most important will be in north-west and central Poland (Szczecin–Lwówek, Świnoujście–Szczecin, Szczecin–Gdańsk, Rembelszczyzna–Gustorzyn and Gustorzyn-Odolanów). The development of the gas transmission network in Poland may constitute an important element of the North - South Gas Corridor connecting the LNG terminal in Świnoujście with the planned Adria LNG terminal with the aid of the transmission infrastructure of Central European countries.

In 2011, GAZ–SYSTEM S.A. completed the construction of the Włocławek–Gdynia gas pipeline, the gas compressor station in Goleniów and the gas compressor station in Jarosław. The Company has also started up the new Polish-Czech connection enabling the transmission of approx. 0,5 bcm of gas annually. GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. is also developing gas pipelines in Lower Silesia, which will enable the off-take of increased amounts of gas from the western direction. The capacity at the Lasów point on the Polish-German border currently amounts to 1.5 bcm annually (its earlier capacity amounted to 0.9 bcm annually).

Investments fulfilled by GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. in 2011 with their possibility of using virtual reverse flow services on the Yamal pipeline have created the technical possibilities to import over 3.3 bcm of gas annually to Poland from new sources (approx. 30% of the currently performed import).
