New projects in the gas sector
The NDI Group increases its orders portfolio in the gas sector. It will build the DN1000 gas pipeline from Gustorzyn to Leśniewice and will carry out construction work on the development of natural gas wells in the Kościan-Brońsko mine.
Soon, a 54-kilometer-long high-pressure gas pipeline from Gustorzyn to Leśniewice will be built. It will be used for gas transmission towards the Warsaw and Łódź agglomerations and to Radom and its surroundings, as well as to the south-eastern regions of the country. NDI Energy became the contractor for the investment.
There are plans to build a gas pipeline from Gustorzyn to Wronowo. Recently, a tender has been concluded for the construction of a 54-kilometer section, which is to run in the Kujawy-Pomerania and Mazovia Voivodships. It will cover the area of six communes: Brześć Kujawski, Włocławek, Choceń, Kowal, Baruchowo and Gostynin.
“A high pressure gas pipeline with a diameter of 1,000 mm and operating pressure of 8.4 MPa is to be implemented. The expected completion date is approximately 22 months from the signing of the contract” –says Cezary Chruściński, President of NDI Energy, which became the general contractor.
The investment includes not only the construction of the gas pipeline. The development of the Gustorzyn gas distribution point and the construction of the switching system are also to be performed. The plans also include a cable ducting with optical fibre with a length of about 54 kilometres and the blocking and bleeding system ZZU Przydatki
The investment cost is almost PLN 250 million. The investor is Operator Gazociągów Przesyłowych Gaz-System S.A.
NDI Energy also works on two other gas pipelines: the Strachocina – Podgórska Wola section, and the Northern Section of the Poland-Lithuania pipeline.
Another investment acquired by the company is the development of natural gas wells in Greater Poland.
The contractor’s tasks include construction works that will allow the use and production of natural gas from the Brońsko – 31H and 32 wells, which are located in the Śmigiel commune, in the Kościan district. The Brońsko-31H horizontal well has a total length of 2,700 meters and a depth of over 2,212 meters. The Brońsko-32 vertical well reached a depth of 2,239 meters.
The Kościan-Brońsko mine produced 895 million m³ of gas in 2020. Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo estimates that the connection and use of the new Brońsko-31H and Brońsko-32 wells will allow to increase the production of natural gas from the field by almost 120 million m³, i.e. by 13 percent.
“In short, the scope of the investment includes the construction of infrastructure in the Brońsko 31H and Brońsko 32 well zones, mine pipelines, gas and methanol pipelines with a length of approx. 1.4 km, low voltage power lines, cable ducting with optical fibre with a length of approx. 1.4 km, as well as the construction of a gas purification and treatment installation. In addition, we will implement control systems and Control and Measurement Instruments and Automation systems as well as enclosed structures” adds Cezary Chruściński, President of NDI Energy.
The new investments will significantly contribute to the increase in natural gas production in the region and Poland’s energy security. The investment cost is approximately PLN 12 million. The investor is Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo S.A.
