Technical features

The 230-km submarine pipeline will connect Redvig in Denmark and Niechorze in Poland. The capacity and diameter of the pipeline has not yet been determined. However, in 2001 it was discussed that the pipeline should to transport at least 5 billion cubic meter (bcm) of gas annually. The cost of building the pipeline was estimated at 335-350 million euros depending on the diameter of the pipe.

The Baltic Pipe project is related to the Skanled project. Poland wants to explore the possibilities of importing Norwegian gas via Skanled, through the Danish natural gas system and the Baltic Pipe. At the same time Denmark is looking at importing Russian gas via Poland and the Baltic Pipe, so that gas would flow in both directions.
