What goes on in Poland on the 17th of April.

A Polish company will provide part of the Baltic Pipe pipes

Izostal announced in a current report of April 16 that it has submitted the most attractive offer for the supply of DN 1000 insulated steel pipes for Gaz-System for the construction of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline. – Specification of essential terms of the contract provides for the implementation of deliveries from November 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021 – we read in the report. Izostal’s offer amounted to PLN 97.1 million net (PLN 119.4 million gross).

The rival of the Polish gas reverse flow to Ukraine may work

The Slovak regulator has agreed to gas supplies via the Slovakia-Ukraine gas connection in both directions. This is a competition for a similar service on the Polish-Ukrainian border. The operator of gas transmission pipelines in Slovakia Eustream has published the commercial terms of access to its transmission connections with a new service in the form of two-way physical gas transmission via gas connections with Ukraine in Velikiy Kapuszany and Budyny. Eustream takes responsibility for the gas taken on the border with Ukraine and Ukrainian entities for the gas transferred in its direction. Customers will be able to reserve gas pipeline capacity in annual, quarterly, monthly, day ahead and daytime auctions. Access to the Slovakian connection will enable the Ukrainian operator to develop the use of customs warehousing services, i.e. seasonal storage of European gas at discounted warehouses in Ukraine. A virtual reverse has been operating since March in Velikiy Kapuszany.

Polish think tank calls for import of energy from the Russian NPP in Belarus and not only

The Think tank Forum Law for Development (Law4Growth) encourages Poland to import energy, including from Ostrowiec Power Station in Belarus. Its author was an employee of an advisory organization at the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland. The Poles dismantled the Białystok-Roś power connection, focusing on energy from domestic sources. Law4Growth warns against a shortage of generation capacity in Poland due to the long investment process of conventional power plants. He recalls that it lasts six years on average. He reminds that the Supreme Audit Office has determined that all nine projects of this type implemented in recent years in Poland were delayed.
