Gaz-System and Slovak Eustream have signed a connection agreement for the implementation of the gas pipeline between Poland and Slovakia, Gaz-System has reported. Construction work should start in the second half of 2018 and will run until the end of 2021.
The new connection will allow for the diversification of gas sources for the entire Central and Eastern European region. The countries of the region will have direct access to new sources of gas supplies from the north such as fully operational LNG terminals in the Baltic Sea and Norway (from the planned Baltic Pipe gas pipeline), as well as from the south through the Slovakia-Hungary interconnector and the planned Eastring gas pipeline.
Gas transmission operator Gaz-System is responsible for transporting natural gas and managing the most important gas pipelines in Poland.
