Magazine: Poland Delays GIPL
Poland is set to reroute the agreed itinerary of gas interconnector Poland-Lithuania (GIPL), saving money but taking more time to build. Polish transmission system operator Gaz-System told its counterpart Amber Grid that a key compressor station cannot be built as it is too near Warsaw and the noise levels are too high.
The only way round the problem is a new route that is almost 400 km to the east of the original plant. This would avoid the need for a new compressor station as the existing gas transmission capacities could be used in the settlement of Holovchyc near the Belarusian town of Brest.
