Coge Mantovani, as partner of a JV with a Slovakia primary company, is working on the contract for the construction of the gas pipelines of the Eustream; a Slovak gas transmission system operator.
The project is part of the Poland-Slovakia Gas Interconnection that constitutes the crucial part of the North South Gas Interconnections in Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe (NSI East Gas) and will contribute to the enhancement of the regional security of supply and integration of the natural gas markets in the region.
Implementation of the project will enable surrounding CEE countries to benefit from the direct access to different gas supply sources from the North, such as fully operational LNG terminals at the Baltic Sea (ÅšwinoujÅ›cie LNG, Klaipeda LNG) via Gas Interconnection Poland-Lithuania (GIPL) and Norway (through the planned Baltic Pipe) as well as from the South, through the Slovakia-Hungary Interconnection and the planned Eastring pipeline. It will increase liquidity of the natural gas market in the CEE region.
Construction works are planned to be completed by the end of 2020.
