Background

The planned Czech-Polish Gas Interconnector, known as "Stork II"[2], consisted of the construction of a pipeline that would interconnect the existing transmission systems of the Czech Republic and Poland. Pipeline & Gas Journal reported on July 16, 2020 that the NET4GAS 2021-2030 development plan shows the company has "shelved its Czech-Polish pipeline project STORK II that was to boost cross-border capacity with Poland from 2023."[5]

The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas project codes are "TRA-A-136" (Czech-Polish Gas Interconnector (CPI)) and "TRA-A-273" (Poland - Czech Republic Gas Interconnection (PL section)).[1]
