Gaz-System starts public consultations on the next stage of Baltic Pipe

Throughout June, in 15 communes along the route of the Goleniów-Lwówek pipeline – which is to be constructed as part of the Baltic Pipe project – meetings will be held to provide information about the project. The meetings are open to all interested parties, including owners of land where works are to be conducted.

The Baltic Pipe project involves building a gas pipeline and gas infrastructure for the transmission of gas from fields in Norway to Poland and Denmark. In Poland, the project will involve building a gas pipeline connecting the Baltic Pipe to the national transmission system and a Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline. Additionally, the gas compressor stations Goleniów and Odolanów will be extended and a new compressor station will be built in Gustorzyn.

The project is implemented in compliance with the applicable environmental procedures and with due regard to the rights of all interested parties. Gaz-System representatives regularly meet with local authorities and representatives of communities in the areas where project works will be carried out. The goal of the meetings is to inform all the interested parties about the plans and intentions of the project owner at the earliest possible stage of project implementation and to collect feedback from representatives of the local communities.

The first public hearing concerning the Baltic Pipe in Poland was held in March 2018 in Szczecin. Information meetings in the communes along the route of the Goleniów-Lwówek pipeline will be held throughout June. They will be attended by representatives of Gaz-System S.A. and MGGP S.A., the designer of the pipeline.
