Gaz-System has announced the completion of the Zdzieszowice – Kędzierzyn-Koźle gas pipeline, the first of a number of strategic pipelines in the company’s branch in Świerklany, in southern Poland.

The recently completed gas pipeline is an important connection for other lines currently under construction, including Zdzieszowice – Wrocław and Tworóg – Kędzierzyn-Koźle in Opolskie Province. It also forms part of the country’s North-South Gas Corridor.

As part of a wider investment programme, Gaz-System has now commissioned a total of three pipelines: Lwówek – Odolanów, Czeszów – Wierzchowice and Czeszów – Kiełczów.

“Commissioning was planned for 14 February according to the schedule,” commented Artur Zawartko, vice-president of Gaz-System. “As a result of obtaining all the permits and completing the works before the deadline, we were able to have the gas pipeline commissioned already in January this year. It took less than two years to build the pipeline.”

The project included construction of: a 17.3km, 1,000mm diameter gas pipeline, with pressure up to 8.4 MPa; a fibre-optic line along the length of the pipeline; the Kędzierzyn Las system reduction and measurement station (SRMS) with a capacity of 150,000 cubic metres per hour; two block and bleed systems; and an access road to the SRMS, which measures 900x7m, including water and sewage connections.
