The Baltic Pipe gas pipeline project has received the latest construction permit from Sweden. The gas pipeline between Poland and Denmark will allow Warsaw to organize deliveries bypassing Gazprom.
Stockholm issued the permit on May 7. The length of the Swedish section will be 75 kilometers. Baltic Pipe has already received a full package of licenses from Denmark and Poland. The construction of the gas pipeline was undertaken by the Italian contractor “Saipem.” The total cost of the competitor “Verified stream-2” is estimated at 266.8 million euros.
The project started in 2001, but in 2007, and then in 2009 was frozen for economic reasons. It was reopened in 2011. The pipeline will be connected to the Norwegian gas transport system and will allow us to supply up to 10 billion m3 of natural gas per year. The route provides for deliveries to Poland and other European countries via Denmark.
