The Action contributes to the implementation of the Project of Common Interest (PCI) 8.5 Poland-Lithuania interconnection ("GIPL" or Gas Interconnection Poland-Lithuania), which is a gas pipeline that will connect the Polish and Lithuanian gas transmission systems.
This Action relates to the GIPL pipeline and its auxiliary installations. GIPL includes, on the Polish side, a gas pipeline between Hołowczyce and the PL-LT border (approx. range between 310 and 357 km, DN 700) and a compressor station in Gustorzyn; on the Lithuanian side, a gas pipeline between the PL-LT border and Jauniunai (approx. 177 km, DN 700) as well as gas pressure reduction and metering station(s) located near the PL-LT border.
The Action covers all of the pre-investment steps needed for the preparatory documentation and permits up to the actual building permission for the GIPL (tendering documentation for the localisation decision and territory planning, basic and detailed engineering studies, environmental impact assessment (EIA) and related activities for compressor stations, if applicable). The objective is to provide the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED), possible environmental approvals and legally binding permissions, which are a crucial step for the construction of GIPL.
