"The aim of the project is to increase the energy security of the country and the modernization and expansion of the transmission system in southeast Poland.

"he investment is of great importance in the context of the planned construction of a new gas pipeline between Poland and Ukraine," Gaz-System said in a statement.

Gaz-System said it has selected PGNiG Technologie to build the EU-backed pipeline following a tender.

The investment will cost Zloty 288 million ($70.5 million) and is scheduled to be completed in 2019, the TSO said.

The project will provide transmission capacity for the planned Polish-Slovakian interconnector.

It will also allow for the expansion of the Hermanowice interconnector on the Ukrainian border and will provide transmission capacity for a planned 112-km interconnector between Hermanowice and Bliche Volytsia in Ukraine, Gaz-System said.

The Polish and Ukrainian TSOs are currently conducting a market consultation on the interconnection between the two countries.
