The Baltic Pipe was connected to the land pipelines of Denmark and Poland
Denmark's Energinet and Poland's GAZ-System have completed the last welds connecting the Baltic Pipe to the Danish gas system in Faxe and the Polish one in Pogojelica.
"Today we can say that the Baltic Pipe offshore gas pipeline has technically become an element of the national gas transport system. Thanks to this investment, we connected the gas networks of Poland and Denmark, creating a new gas supply corridor to Central and Eastern Europe. Commissioning and gasification of the pipeline are ahead, and they plan to start gas transmission on time, i.e. on October 1 this year," said GAZ-System president Tomash Stepen.
In Denmark, the gas pipeline "linking" operation was performed by the Energinet company. It provided for the welding of a 120 m section connecting the land gas pipeline with the sea pipeline in a previously prepared open trench. On the Polish side, the operation was carried out by GAZ-System, performing similar work, the company had to weld a connector on a section of 90 m.
The works on the opposite sides of the Baltic Sea physically connected the gas transport networks of Poland and Denmark, ensuring the possibility of gas transport between these countries.
