The Balticconnector pipeline will be ready for commercial use as of 1 January 2020.
On the Finnish side, construction works have been finished, the onshore pipeline has been filled with gas and the trial run of the Inkoo compressor station was successfully completed.
During November, the offshore pipeline will be filled with gas and connected to Estonia’s gas transmission network before being ready for commercial use.
Baltic Connector Oy President and CEO Herkko Plit said each project phase has been completed successfully and on schedule.
“We are getting closer to the moment when all work is completed and the pipeline is left on standby to wait for the opening of the gas market on 1 January 2020,” said Mr Plit.
“At this point, we can already say that the pipeline will be ready for use on schedule.”
The completion of the project will be marked with a commissioning celebration on 11 December 2020 with stakeholders and guests in Finland and Estonia.
