GAZ-SYSTEM: Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline received a complete set of location decisions

On June 14, 2019, the Governor of the Lubusz Voivodeship, issued the last two location decisions for the project “Construction of the Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline, DN 1000”. Together with the decisions issued by the the Governor of the Greater Poland Voivodeship on May 15, 2019 and the Governor of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship on May 17, 2019, the decisions constitute a complete set of documents related to the implementation of this project.

The construction of the Goleniów-Lwówek gas pipeline is one of five projects to be implemented as part of the Baltic Pipe Project in Poland. The gas pipeline will be approx. 191 km long, with the nominal diameter of 1000 mm and the operating pressure of 8.4 MPa.

It will be constructed along the current Szczecin-Lwówek gas pipeline. It will be located in the area of three voivodeships: West Pomeranian, Lubusz and Greater Poland. It will cover 15 municipalities: Goleniów, Maszewo, Stargard, Dolice, Przelewice, Pełczyce, Strzelce Krajeńskie, Zwierzyn, Santok, Rain, Skwierzyna, Przytoczna, Pszczew, Międzychód and Lwówek.

Ultimately, the implementation of the planned gas pipeline will be divided into two stages:

  • 1st STAGE: the Goleniów-Cierzyce section, approx. 122 km long;
  • 2nd STAGE: the Cierzyce-Lwówek section, approx. 69 km long.

The project is intended to ensure that an increased quantity of gas can be collected from the Baltic Pipe undersea gas pipeline and the LNG Terminal in Świnoujście. The implementation of the project will also be an essential element of the North-South Gas Corridor.
