Poland inaugurates the 10 bcm/year Baltic Pipe gas pipeline

28 Sep 2022

The Baltic Pipe gas pipeline project has been inaugurated in Goleniów, northwestern Poland, on 27 September 2022, with the start of effective gas transmission to start on 1 October 2022.

The 10 bcm/year Baltic Pipe project, developed by Denmark's Energinet and Poland's Gaz-System, is a gas infrastructure that allows the transport of gas from Norway to the Danish and Polish markets, as well as to end-users in neighbouring countries. The Baltic Pipe Project also enables the transport of 3 bcm/year of gas from Poland to Denmark.

The Baltic Pipe has been a European Project of Common Interest since 2013 and has received around €267m of EU funding through the Connecting Europe Facility.

Earlier in September 2022, the Norwegian oil and gas company Equinor signed a 10-year gas sales agreement to supply Poland’s PGNiG with 2.4 bcm/year of natural gas, through the Baltic Pipe project. The agreement will be effective from 1 January 2023 to 1 January 2033.
