The Baltic Pipe gas pipeline to link Norwegian gas resources with Denmark and Poland will officially open on September 29, a government official said on Tuesday.

Marek Grobarczyk, a deputy infrastructure minister, wrote on Twitter that preparations were still underway on the pipeline's compressor stations. In its initial phase the pipeline will forward 2-3 billion sqm of gas annually, and 10 billion sqm when when fully operable, he wrote.
