Poland is confident of meeting a 2022 deadline for completing a new Baltic Sea gas pipeline to Norway,which will connect Poland to Norwegian gas deposits via Denmark and aims to reduce Polish reliance on Russian gas.
Construction of the pipeline, with capacity of 10 billion cubic metres per year, is set to begin in spring 2020.
