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 Koskowola Wronów Pipeline, Jarosław Rozwadów Pipeline, Hermanowice Jarosław Pipeline, Hermanowice Strachocina Pipeline, Rembelszczyzna Wronów Pipeline, Pogórska Wola Tworzen Pipeline, Strachocina Pogórska Wola Pipeline, Gustorzyn 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]

The pipeline entered into construction in 2018 following the awarding of a €51.5 million (US$61.2 million) public money grant from the European Union's European Regional Development Fund.[3] According to Gaz-System in August of 2020, construction was planned to be completed in 2020.[5] However, construction was completed in April 2021.[6]

It is expected to be connected to the Pogórska-Wola-Tworzen Gas Pipeline once construction is finished on that project.[6]
