The pipeline will connect the Polish świnoujście with Denmark and will provide access to gas from Norway. The introduction of it into operation is scheduled for 2022.

Poland, which opposes construction of the pipeline Nord stream-2 from Russia to Germany, intends to build a gas pipeline under the Baltic sea. However, the project Baltic Pipe will lead from the Polish coast in Denmark and will allow the state of the Polish gas transmission company Gaz-System to connect to the Norwegian network of gas pipelines. About it reports on Wednesday, February 14, the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Polish energy company PGNiG in the end of 2017, the reserved capacity of the pipeline for 15 years, the newspaper notes . The pipeline capacity of 10 billion cubic meters per year and cost $ 2 billion is expected to be commissioned in 2022.

It will reach the Polish coast from świnoujście, a port terminal for liquefied natural gas.

Company Gaz-System, according to its own data, requested from the Polish government permission to build and has identified kilometer-long corridor in the coastal zone, which is planned to lay a gas pipeline. The final decision on construction has to be made in 2018.

We will remind, in January of 2018, Gazprom has allowed the construction of the second line of the Turkish stream in the exclusive economic zone of Turkey.

It is expected that the transportation of gas via the Turkish stream will begin in December 2019.
