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, Hungary, and Slovakia. The other pipelines in the network include: Rozwadów Końskowola Wronów Pipeline, Jarosaw Rozwadów Pipeline, Hermanowice Jarosław Pipeline, Hermanowice Strachocina Pipeline, Tworóg Tworzen Pipeline, Pogórska Wola Tworzen Pipeline, Rembelszczyzna Wronów Pipeline, Gustorzyn Wronów Pipeline.[1]The commissioning date for the project is 2029.[5]

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."[4]

The pipeline entered into construction in 2017 following the awarding of a €54.9 million (US$65.2 million) public money grant from the European Union's European Regional Development Fund.[2]

In 2018, the project was in its "implementation" stage[6] and Gaz-System announced that construction of the first stage of the pipeline had been completed utilizing an automated welding process.[7]

According to Gaz-System, as of August 2020, construction was planned to be completed in 2021.[3] An April 13 2021 news articles referred to the pipeline as under construction.[8] The project contractor, NDI Energy / NDI SA consortium, stated that the project execution took place from 2017-2020. As of August 2021, however, no indication is apparent that Gaz-System's completed construction or that the pipeline has been commissioned.[9]
