Poland: New Baltic Pipe for Norwegian gas via Denmark
A new Baltic Pipe Project connects the Norwegian gas export system to Poland via Denmark and facilitates the flow of Norwegian pipeline gas to Poland.
The agreement is for ten years, with a volume of around 2.4 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas per year to be exported through the new Baltic Pipe. The volumes under the new, long-term agreement reflecting market prices are equivalent to around 15 % of Poland's typical annual gas consumption. The deal is from 1 January 2023 to 1 January 2033.
The Baltic Pipe project connects to the Norwegian gas transportation system with Denmark's transmission system operator (TSO) Energinet, responsible for the components on Danish territory, and Poland's TSO GAZ-SYSTEM in charge of the section between Denmark and Poland. Equinor, the energy provider accountable for the export, is also working with local companies on developing large-scale offshore wind and solar projects in Poland with the polish PGNiG Group.
