By bne IntelliNews September 3, 2010
The Czech-Polish cross-border natural gas pipeline will be completed by the end of 2010 but would become operational only in late 2011, when the first natural gas deliveries will be made. The pipeline in the Cesky Tesin area is constructed pursuant to an agreement between the country's major natural gas importer RWE Transgas and Polish state gas transmission system operator Gaz-System. The 31km-long pipeline (10km in the Czech Republic and 21km in Poland) will have a capacity of 0.5 cubic metres of natural gas per year. According to earlier media information, the total cost of the project is estimated at about EUR 21mn, from which EUR 7mn will be invested by RWE Transgas. RWE Transgas is to receive EUR 3.5mn funding from the EU, Gaz-System - EUR 10.5mn.
