(Reuters) - Poland's state owned gas pipeline operator Gaz-System will next month auction capacity to ship the fuel via new interconnections with Denmark, Slovakia and Lithuania.
Auctions to book annual capacity on the links will be held on July 4 on the GSA platform, while capacity on existing gas links with Germany will be offered on the RBP booking platform, Gaz-System said on Monday.
Poland has been long planning to replace gas supplies from Russia with shipments of the fuel from alternative sources and is commissioning three new interconnectors that will allow the shipping of gas from Lithuania, Slovakia and the Norwegian continental shelf via Denmark.
A link with Lithuania, opened last month, allows gas to come from the LNG terminal in Klaipeda. In the summer, a link with Slovakia will be opened, while in October, Baltic Pipe, a pipeline connecting Poland and Norway via Denmark will be commissioned.

Modern society would not be possible without the use of pipelines to transport natural gas, crude oil and finished products to demand centers.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
