At the end of November, the Baltic Pipe reached its target transmission capacity of up to 10 billion cubic metres per annum (bcma) towards Poland. Energinet, the Danish Transmission System Operator, has completed the process of connecting the compressor station located on Zealand to the Baltic Pipe infrastructure.
“The Baltic Pipe has reached its maximum capacity. With this infrastructure, we can supply Poland with as much as 10 billion cubic metres of natural gas and this volume covers over 60 per cent of our annual domestic demand for this fuel,” said Tomasz Stępień, President of GAZ-SYSTEM. “Since January, we have also increased the capacity of the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście. Moreover, we have opened gas interconnectors with Lithuania and Slovakia. We can now say with confidence that the task of ensuring Poland’s energy security, which had been set for GAZ-SYSTEM, has been accomplished.”
Gas transmission via Baltic Pipe started on 1 October 2022, but its capacity has been limited until the completion of all construction work by the Danish partner.
