The aim of this project is to increase of gas sales through distribution and turnover of gas fuel by using such solutions as acquisition, construction and expansion of our own gas network situated on the areas where gas connections are not available yet.

In the near future, there are plans to purchase and expand of the local distribution network, dedicated to high-methane gas, which is located in the same region. Funds acquired by our company, along with own contribution, allow us for the expansion of the network to length of 120 km. The preparatory work already designed more than 87 km of the supplying  pipeline, in which 84 km obtained valid building permit. Other parts of the project (about 33 km) are currently at the design stage, further arrangements, obtaining a building permission for public purpose investment and updating survey maps for design purposes. It is estimated that preparatory work should be completed by the end of this year.

– Combine our powers with business partner allows us to start construction work on already designed sections and successively putting them to use – explained Bogusław Satława. – Our plan is to complete the project by the end of next year, which means the need to build and run the entire target network and start selling gas to retail customers, businesses and public facilities.

Our project is part of the wider environmental policy, allowing to replace traditional fossil fuels with blue fuel, with zero emissions of sulfur and solids – adds the President Satława.

Founds acquired by the Company, together with existing assets as own contribution and action taken in the past, which involves the construction of natural gas liquefaction plant, will bring the high-methane gas sales of at least 12 million m3-excluding the gas consumed for the production of LNG.
