Norway to Start Delivering Gas to Poland via Baltic Pipe Towards the End of 2022

The Baltic Pipe, which is under construction to carry Norwegian gas to Poland via Denmark, will start deliveries in October or November according to Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki. The EU has been looking for ways to cut Europe’s dependence on Russian gas by two thirds this year and end its reliance before 2030.

Morawiecki said the Baltic Pipe would be ready towards the end of 2022 and underlined that Europe has to be independent from Russian oil and gas.

The pipeline will have a capacity of 10 billion cubic meters a year, around half of Poland’s needs.

Construction of the project was suspended in May last year due to environmental issues in Denmark, but construction work is resuming now.

After getting the new environmental permit, the pipeline will be partially operational from October 1 and run at full capacity startgin January 1, 2023.
