Gaz-System S.A (Gaz-System), along with its European gas partners, is undertaking the North-South Gas Corridor project in Swinoujscie, Poland.
The project involves the construction of a natural gas pipeline network to transfer gas from Swinoujscie up to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. It will connect the LNG Terminal in Swinoujscie with the Baltic Pipe, through central Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary with the proposed Adria LNG terminal in Croatia.
It includes the construction of compression stations, storage tanks, a terminal, liquefaction unit, pumping stations, loading and unloading facilities, installation of equipment, safety system, laying of pipelines, and related facilities.
The project is being implemented in sections simultaneously in various locations.
The inter-connector includes Hungarian section being 92 km long, with Vecss and Balassagyarmat as the two endpoints. The Slovak section is 19 km long, with the endpoint of Velk Zlievce. The capacity of Slovak-Hungarian direction pipeline will be 4 billion m3 per year and 1.6 billion m3 per year for Hungarian-Slovak direction.
The Hungarian-Slovak natural gas inter-connector pipeline was developed by Hungarian Gas Transit Ltd (developer). The two key owners of the Company are MVM Magyar Villamos Muvek Zrt. (MVM Hungarian Electricity Private Ltd Company) and MFB Invest Plc. with an identical ownership ratio of 49.98% each.
On May 23, 2012, the Hungarian Gas Transit Ltd. and its Slovak partner Eustream as concluded a Joint Investment Agreement on reaching the commercial operation phase of the project by 2015 and also set the conditions and technical parameters of the system.
The Hungarian section of the Slovak-Hungarian Gas pipeline was installed by OTF Fovllalkoz Zrt., while the Slovak section was constructed by BMS Bojnansky.
Pipeline materials were supplied by ThyssenKrupp Mannex, GASPIPE, Metinvest International, and RMA Kehl. The first steel pipes for the project were delivered in December 2012 and the pipeline construction started in March 2013.
In March 2014, construction of the Hungarian-Slovak Natural gas Inter-connector pipeline has been completed.
Polish-Czech Natural gas Inter-connector pipeline:
Polish-Czech Natural gas Inter-connector pipeline is completed in August 2011.
The project was subdivided into two parts.
The first part was developed by GAZ-SYSTEM, which included the pipeline of a diameter of 500 mm and length of 22 km, running from Polish-Czech border, along with the Cieszyn-Skoczw to metering station in the area of Cieszyn. The construction works on the pipeline were completed at 2010 and on the metering station in August 2011.
The second part was developed by NET4GAS s.r.o., which included construction of the pipeline diameter of 500mm and length of 10km, running from the Polish-Czech border to the entry of the Czech gas transmission system in the in the cadastral area of Zpupn Lhota, a part of the Chotebuz municipality.
The construction works completed in August 2011.
The project was co-financed by both Czech and Polish side through European Commission (EC) co-funded from the EEPR program (European Energy Program for Recovery). The Polish part of the project received co-financing in the amount of US$14.34 million, whereas the Czech side was awarded US$4.7 million, which constitutes 50% of the planned expenditure.
Polish-Slovakian Natural gas Inter-connector pipeline:
Polish-Slovakian Natural gas Inter-connector is in the pre-investment stage.
The project is being planned to be executed in two stages.
In the first stage, the project capacity to Poland is deemed to be of 5.7 billion m3 per annum and to reach even up to 9.5 billion cubic m3 per annum in the second stage.
Capacity to Slovakia is considered to be around 4.7 billion cubic meters/per annum. The length of the pipeline in the area of Slovakia is between 106 to 118km.
In April 2012, Polish GAZOPROJEKT was appointed as the feasibility study consultant for Slovakia-Poland gas interconnector project. The company will cooperate with Ernst & Young and Slovak Company, GasTech s.r.o.
On October 31, 2013, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and Eustream submitted investment request, to the Polish and Slovak regulatory authorities.
On November 22, 2013, Governments of Poland and Slovakia executed a Cooperation Agreement regarding the support of the implementation of the Poland-Slovakia interconnection project. In the same month, analytical works completed.
In November 2014, The European Commission allocated US$5 million and US$7.5 million for the beginning of the construction of the pipeline between Slovakia and Poland respectively.
Allocated funds are intended to provide initial design and engineering work on the creation of new pipeline.
The feasibility study was completed and construction is expected to commence in 2018 and complete in 2020.
In June 2016, the project was granted Project of Common Interest (PCI) status by the European Union
Planning activities on Polish-Slovakian Natural gas Inter-connector are underway and expected to be operational in 2022.
The project involves the construction of a natural gas pipeline network connecting an LNG Terminal in Swinoujscie, Poland with the proposed Adria LNG terminal in Croatia.
The US$2,500 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of compression stations
2. Construction of storage tanks
3. Construction of a terminal
4. Construction of a liquefaction unit
5. Construction of pumping stations
6. Installation of equipment
7. Installation of safety systems
8. Laying of pipelines
