Background

The pipeline is listed as a Project of Common Interest by the European Commission, making it eligible for public funding. It is part of a proposed network in Eastern Europe meant to improve connectivity between Poland, Hungry, and Slovakia. The other pipelines in the network include: Rozwadów Końskowola Wronów Pipeline, Jarosław Rozwadów Pipeline, Hermanowice Jarosław Pipeline, Hermanowice Strachocina Pipeline, Tworóg Tworzen Pipeline, Pogórska Wola Tworzen Pipeline, Strachocina Pogórska Wola Pipeline, Rembelszczyzna Wronów Pipeline.[1] The network is listed on the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG) ten year network development plan as "North - South Gas Corridor in Western Poland" and "TRA-N-245."[4]

In December 2019, the European Investment Bank signed a €233 million loan agreement with Gaz-System to cover the construction of the project as well as the construction of the Polish section of the company's Poland-Slovakia Gas Pipeline. The EIB did not provide disaggregated loan amounts for the two projects.[2]
