Artur Zawartko, Vice-President of the Management Board of the Gaz-System operator of Polish gas pipelines, said this during the Polish-Ukrainian Gas Forum in Wroclaw, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"For us, the final date [of commissioning the interconnector pipeline] is October 2022, but we expect [it to be put into operation] in 2020-2021," Zawartko said.
According to him, the construction of a necessary element of the interconnector pipeline, the Hermanowice -Strachocina gas pipeline, is ongoing on the Polish side of the border.
"We still need to finish construction of 1.5 km of the gas pipeline and the gas measuring station. We are ready to complete construction quickly if our Ukrainian colleagues do the same," the Gaz-System representative said.
According to him, Polish and Ukrainian gas operators have managed this year to slightly increase the capacity of the existing Polish-Ukrainian gas pipeline from 1.5 billion cubic meters to almost 2 billion cubic meters per year.
