The Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs published a regulation on the national directive for Baltic Pipe, which was a condition for the Environmental Protection Agency to issue, on July 12, an EIA permit for construction works on land.

 

The Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Simon Kollerup of the Social Democratic Party published a regulation on the national directive for the Baltic Pipe project.

Baltic Pipe is a gas pipeline which shall connect gas systems in Norway, Denmark and Poland. The project is carried out in cooperation between Energinet and the Polish company GAZ-SYSTEM (Member of NPCC).

The national directive was a condition for the Environmental Protection Agency to issue, on July 12, an EIA permit for construction works on land. Energinet may now start to obtain permits and derogations in 13 municipalities, through which the project will run from west to east.

In Denmark, the pipeline will run from Houstrup Strand beach on the west coast of Jutland through parts of Jutland, Funen and Zealand to Faxe Bay in Southern Zealand. Moreover, the project includes an extension of the gas processing plant in Nybro in the municipality of Varde and a new compressor station outside Everdrup in the municipality of Næstved.

The National Directive shall reserve land areas for gas pipelines and installations in Nybro

and Everdrup. Together with the environmental assessment, the draft national directive was subject to two public consultations in the period from February 15 to April 12 of the current year.
