The role of #gasstorage is expected to be even more pronounced due to the higher penetration of intermittent energy sources & more electrification into our #energy system. With this study, we wanted to look into more details and raise awareness "
Dr Axel Wietfeld, #GSE President

"The #data we collect & make available for further analyses is the latest & most accurate from the industry. We will continue to deliver the right & most #reliable figures in support for the best decisions.”

Baltic Pipe

By GAZ-SYSTEM, Energinet (Poland, Denmark)

The Baltic Pipe project, that will be effective by October 2022, aims at creating a new gas supply corridor in the European market, from Norway to Denmark and Poland, as well as to end-users in neighbour countries. At the same time, it will enable the supply of gas from Poland to the Danish market

The project is being developed in collaboration between the Danish gas and electricity transmission system operator Energinet and the Polish gas transmission system operator GAZ-SYSTEM, and is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.

Technical aspects

  • The pipeline will have a capacity of 10 billion m3 /year of gas from Denmark to Poland and 3 billion m3 from Poland to Denmark. This equals around 120 TWh of energy if used for methane.

Contribution to energy transition

According to the Climate report[1] published by Baltic Pipe Project, this project could bring climate benefits by 2022, among which:

  • 70 million tonnes of carbon emissions would be reduced annually by utilizing gas combined with wind (Poland has high potential for wind energy). Such a reduction would contribute with 58% to Poland’s 2030 target.
  • In the future, the pipeline could be used not only for natural gas, but also for greener gases such as biomethane or green hydrogen as well as for CO2 used in CCS. This would require some modifications and a new license.

Baltic Pipe project can be used to produce about 60 TWh of electricity. This can then be combined with another 40 TWh wind (and/or solar) for a total of 100 TWh. This corresponds to an increase of 60% in electricity generation compared to today. This clean electricity can be used to replace coal in electricity generation, oil and wood in buildings using electrically powered heat-pumps.
