Poland's government made the case on 19 October 2016 at the European Parliament for the 'Northern Gate' gas pipeline project, designed to bring gas from the Norwegian shelf across Denmark to Poland.

The project’s history dates back to 2009. In 2013, the European Commission granted the status of 'Project of common interest' (PCI) for Baltic Pipe, one of the components of the 'Northern Gate'. In 2015, the Connecting Europe Facility gave a grant for a feasibility study.

The target date for completing the project is 2022 and by 2019 Poland wants to reach the 'point of no-return' for the completion of the project, the Polish official explained.
