Poland and Denmark have solved problems related to the construction of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline. The representative of the Polish government on strategic energy infrastructure Petro Naimski announced this on Polish Radio.
“An agreement has been reached and work has resumed,” he said.
Currently, the laying of 100 km of offshore section of the gas pipeline has been completed.
“Two of the three seagoing vessels are currently operating in the Baltic. About 100 km of the Baltic Pipeline, with a total length of about 295 km, have already been laid at the bottom of the Baltic,” Naimsky said.
According to him, “everything is going according to plan.”
On May 4, 2020, the construction of the Baltic Pipe was launched in Poland. President Andrzej Duda announced this on national TV. He stressed that as a result, Ukraine will be able to receive gas.
