Poland’s natural gas transmission system operator Gaz-System has obtained the construction permit for the Kolnik-Gdańsk gas pipeline, one of the components of the Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) project.
The pipeline will be approximately 35 kilometres long and it will enable the flow of gas to the region of central Poland, after being collected and regasified at the FSRU floating terminal located in Gdańsk Bay.
“We obtained the first of the three construction permits required for the 250-kilometre onshore section of the FSRU project,” said Tomasz Stępień, President of Gaz-System. “After the selection of the contractors, we plan to immediately commence the construction works.”
Earlier in June, the company obtained all the necessary environmental decisions for the three onshore gas pipelines. Now, in the case of the Gardeja-Kolnik and Gustorzyn-Gardeja gas pipelines, the next step in obtaining permits will be the submission of applications for location decisions.
