To upgrade gas links with Poland, work is underway on modernizing the final stretch of an 80 km pipeline from the Polish border to the Komarno compressor station in Lviv region

, reports Serhiy Makogon, Director General of Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System Operator.  Although work is to be completed by this time next year, the cross border pipeline links will be inadequate for Ukraine to meet its goal of receiving from Poland 6.6 billion cubic meters – slightly more than half of Ukraine’s total annual imports. Referring to Poland’s Baltic liquefied natural gas landing terminal on the Baltic, Makogon said: “”We are actively working on creating alternative gas supply routes to Ukraine, and Poland is a key direction for us, given the existing LNG terminal in Świnoujście.”
