Baltic Pipe pipeline has reached full capacity
On 30 November this year, the offshore gas pipeline reached its target capacity of 10 bcm per annum towards Poland. Energinet, the Danish transmission system operator, has completed the connection of the Zealand compressor station to the Baltic Pipe infrastructure.
– Baltic Pipe has been at full capacity since 30 November. Thanks to this infrastructure, we can bring as much as 10 bcm of gas to Poland per year, which covers more than 60 per cent of the country’s annual demand for this resource. Since January this year, we have increased the capacity of the LNG terminal in Świnoujście. This year we also launched gas pipelines to Lithuania and Slovakia. Today, we can confidently say that the task of ensuring Poland’s energy security, set for GAZ-SYSTEM, has been accomplished,” said Tomasz Stępień, President of GAZ-SYSTEM.
Transmission via the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline was launched on 1 October this year, but it operated to a limited extent until all construction work on the Danish side was completed. Currently, the Baltic Pipe pipelines and compressor station in Denmark have achieved their target technical parameters and can transmit 10 bcm per year starting from 30 November 2022.
