Baltic Pipe gas – onshore pipeline in progress

The construction of the drilling under the Warta River will be completed in January 2022, reported Gaz-System.

“The technology of trenchless drilling used by Gaz-System enables minimally invasive crossing of geologically or urbanization difficult areas. On the onshore section of the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline, we will use this technology in 120 intersections, including with roads, viaducts and rivers, said vice-president Krzysztof Jackowski.

The drilling of the well near the Warta River began on November 24, 2021, but preparations were already underway from September. At that time, the pipes were welded, dividing them into four sections, each weighing over 200 tons. The connected sections were subjected to an initial tightness test. The facilities necessary for drilling were also prepared, together with a 6 × 42 m starting chamber. The pipeline to be laid has a diameter of 1,000 mm, while the drilling head is 1,110 mm. The total length of the borehole will be 1,400 m, and the gas pipeline itself will be installed at a depth of approx. 30 m (at the lowest point it will be 40 m deep). Drilling is expected to be completed by mid-January 2022.
