Reuters reported that Poland's gas grid operator Gaz-System agreed to buy a set of compressor units for USD 141 million from US company Solar Turbines for its planned link to Norway's gas fields. The east European country sees the connection, known as the Baltic Pipe, as a way to diversify its gas supply, most of which is currently imported from Russia under a long-term contract with Gazprom that expires in 2022.

The Baltic Pipe, as well as increased supplies of liquefied natural gas via a Baltic Sea terminal at Swinoujscie, are designed to help Poland replace the Russian deliveries.

Gaz-System Chief Executive Mr Tomasz Stepien, said that "The contract with the American supplier of key machinery for the three compressor stations located in Poland constitutes yet another milestone achieved by Gaz-System under the Baltic Pipe Program."

Poland's government official responsible for key energy infrastructure Piotr Naimski, also speaking at the conference, said the Baltic Pipe project was well on track to be completed in October 2022, as planned.
