Poland and Denmark will share the costs of Baltic Pipe

The Polish Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) and the Danish Energy Regulatory Authority (DERA) have issued a coordinated decision regarding the cross-border cost allocation of the Baltic Pipe project.

The decision was issued on the basis of a joint application submitted by GAZ-SYSTEM and Energinet pursuant to Article 12 sec. 3 of Regulation (EU) No 347/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure.

According to the regulation, the project promoters shall submit an investment request together with a proposal of cross-border cost allocation to all national energy regulatory authorities in the Member States where the project is expected to have a significant positive net impact. In the case of the Baltic Pipe project which is generating the positive net impact in both countries involved – i.e. in Poland and Denmark, the investment request was submitted jointly by GAZ-SYSTEM and Energinet to the ERO and DERA respectively.

The approval reflects the economic, social and environmental costs and benefits arising from the implementation of the Baltic Pipe project for the Member States concerned, as well as the possible need for financial support.
