Finland-Estonia Gas pipeline allocated EU funding, while Nord Stream2 falls out of Polish anti-monopoly agency.
The rationale behind the construction of a pipeline connecting to deposits on the Norwegian continental shelf is being called into question for economic reasons.
Only the construction of a gas pipeline to the Norwegian deposits and the expansion of the LNG terminal will provide us with great political and economic benefits, says Krzysztof Księżopolski.
Poland loses its allies in the fight against Nord Stream2 thus new investments in gas infrastructures has gained urgency.
Poland has for a while been attempting to build a coalition against extensions to the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline linking Russia and Western Europe via Germany – avoiding Ukraine and Poland.
The announced construction of a new gas pipeline, the Nord Stream 2, raises questions about the economic and political power of Russia and Gazprom.
Cheap gas from Russia is a problem for Poland but it does not bother Germany or the Czech Republic.
