Belarus’ new high-pressure gas pipeline that will connect the Bobruisk and Yasen gas distribution stations and improve the reliability of gas supply to consumers in both municipalities will be launched in 2023, serving about 200 companies and more than 97,000 households.
The project will be implemented in two phases. Construction works for the first one have been almost completed with 13.5 kilometres of gas networks already installed. The second phase of the project will be launched in the third quarter of 2022. The total length of the pipeline will be 27.4 kilometres and the whole facility is scheduled to be operational in 2023.
The construction of the new gas pipeline will make it possible to minimise the risks of a lack of gas supply to consumers in case of emergencies. This gas supply will also serve some of Belarus’ industrial giants like Belshina, one of the largest tire manufacturers in Europe; Bobruiskagromash, a leading manufacturer of trailed agricultural machinery; and the two Bobruisk power plants.
