The Baltic Pipe project that will ship up to 10 Bcm/yr of Norwegian gas to Poland is on track for its original October 2022 completion, according to Tomasz Stepien, CEO of Poland's Gaz-System. Stepien told the news portal that the Castarone will begin laying pipe in the deepest section of the Baltic Sea by the end of June. "After a week it will be joined by Castoro Sei and Castoro 10 units, which are designed to work in shallower waters," Stepien said. "The work will be performed in parallel. We plan to lay the offshore gas pipeline by the end of this autumn." By completing the 275 km offshore section between Denmark and Poland this fall, Gaz-System, the state-owned investor in the project, will have nearly a year to carry out tests and receive all necessary licenses, Stepien explained.
